August 7th, 2011, 07:58 PM #1Changing Domains... What's the best approach?
I'm renaming my personal blog and snagged the domain name I've been waiting on. What is the best way to switch everything over?
I created a database backup on WP. I can install everything on the new server. I checked out the address change function on Google. Is there something important that I need to consider outside of these things?[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="Magenta"]Marie Sanders[/COLOR][/FONT]

If your blog has any page rank I would recommend a 301 redirect.

Set up your new domain name.
Transfer all files/database(s) etc to your new domain.
In your old domain create a new .htaccess file and put the following in:
RedirectMatch permanent ^/(.*)$ http://www.yournewdomainname.com/
This should redirect everything, page for page, from your old site to your new. None of your indexed pages from your old site will be wasted...Salty kisses, Sandy toes, and a Pirate's heart...

First formally inform your blog readers about the migration
Use Google webmaster central and update the change of blog address
Redirect the pages and post links to new blog pages
