Hi lovely WAers, I hope you are having a relaxing Sunday.

I recently bought a new domain that is more appropriate for my niche site.

Before I switch names, I would

Hi, Chyrstopher and Vitaliy got you covered.

Hi Abie
Thank you for your comment. Cheers!

Excellent answers for you here, Marisa!

Hi Jeff
Thank you for your comment.
Have a nice day.

You're very welcome, and have a GREAT new week!

Jeff

Gracias, to you too!

Hi Marisa, there is an easy move process if you're moving a siterubix website to your own domain: And your rankings should recover quickly. Long term, it is the best move.

Hi Vitaliy.
Many thanks for your advice.
It is not a siterubix site. I did transfer a siterubix to my domain once and that was easy.
This is a new domain replacing an old one.
Good to know that rankings can be recovered, hopefully!
Good day.

Ah ok. Then I would recommend keeping the domain. Switching domain names (both which you purchased) is an annoying process of moving a lot of files and letting the site support do most of it (if it's done here). It's a process, and I would honestly try to avoid it if possible.

Ok, thanks for your advice. I understand it is not worth the hassle. Good day.

No problem!

If you use the Move button inside SiteManager, it will place a Redirection from the old domain name to the new domain name. The search engines will pick up on this and index the new pages, usually, the same as they were before, however, the domain name is part of the ranking algorithm, so the name of it could work for/against you, and depending on how old the previous domain name was, you might lose the domain age value. Remember to also update GSC etc with the new name. And if you have shared your links around, make sure to go and update those backlinks, or leave the redirection in place for as long as possible. Generally speaking though, no, it shouldn't impact you too much, and it's an easy process.

Good morning Chrystopher
Many thanks for your detailed information.
I'd think twice about switching then, as I have shared links everywhere. Cheers!

Hi
I've recently bought a new domain and redirected my old one to that domain

It took a week or less for my new domain to be indexed by Google

It wasn't hard and it didn't involve anything technical

I hope that make sense

Hi Simone
Thank you for the information.
What about the old posts, did they get the same ranking as in the old domain?
Cheers!

Hi again lovely WAers, today is query day for me. I appreciate your thoughts on the following:

A couple months ago I changed the site title and it is now different from

I hope you can figure it out, Marisa!

Jeff

Thanks Jeff, I will give it some time and see what happens. Cheers!

Sounds good, Marisa!

Jeff

If your site title is different to your domain name you may lose repeat traffic as your readers could be looking for sitetitle.com instead of domainname.com

Thanks Marion, True, haven't thought about that.

It could be a number of reasons

Ranking drops are often caused by large changes to a website. When you've migrated a bunch of pages, rolled out a (responsive) redesign or reworked a lot of content you'll see big fluctuations in your rankings. This is natural, and should only worry you in case your rankings don't come back to their previous state.

Hi, thanks. Guess I have to wait and hope rankings come back soon.

It could be the site title, but it could also be due to an algorithm change.

Oh okay, thanks

Hi lovely WAers, I appreciate your opinion on choosing a domain name.

When purchasing a two word domain and the first word ends in the same letter as th

greenet .com
Estimated Value: $8,189 (USD)
greennet .com
Estimated Value: $11,021 (USD)

None of these domains are available, however, it is always more pricey having grammatically correct English words, if also the intention you want to sell website / blog at a future date.

The older the domain the better for Google.

Nice one. I like this. Thanks heaps.

I would eliminate one of the n’s, thus “greenet”
Just a personal preference, though. Either way should be ok.

Thanks for your opinion. I appreciate it.

I see your dilemma. Have you tried a website called Lean Domain Search? You can put in any name you want and it will give you a ton of different (available) variations for a domain name. If you click on the green box, it will tell you if the Twitter account is available too.

If you then want to host at WA, you can buy the domain here.

"Lean domain search" is a good resource.

Many thanks. I just checked Lean Domain and I have compared it with Namemesh and the results are very similar.

Namemesh lists them into different categories: Common, Fun, SEO etc and Lean Domain is good as it tells you if the domain name is good or available as your Twitter name.

I would keep both as in "Green Net"

You may head to http://namemesh.com try find a suitable .com domain or try go daddy valuation tool to find a memorable name.

Hi Abie, thanks for that. I prefer to keep both as it is grammatically correct but not sure what´s best for SEO and google.

The domain is no longer so much important for seo purposes vs quality rich content and choice of good keywords, however I would go with grammatically correct English words. It is certainly more professional.

Thanks again. You are very helpful.
