How Do I Change Domain Name without losing Page Rank??

- December 12th, 2006
I have a website currently being listed on page two for my main search term. (..BTW, the traffic is not very good at all on page two!). In order to get to page one, I think I need to include my search term in my domain name and its regarding this I'm at a crosscrods:
1/ If I change my websites domain, I'll probally loose my page two position right? Its taken me a year to get there and I don't want to loose ot, so I'm thinking of having the new domain page just re-direct to my original website. But something tells me that Google would penalise this.
2/ How about if I use the new domain to start a 'Top Listings' page, with only a few listings and my website being the most prominent. Will Google see a listings page as not having "enough quality content"?
....Any other ideas how I can use this new domain to direct traffic to my site?

Welcome to ABW
I wouldn't change the domain name, I would work on optimizing the current domain to make the pages rank better for the keywords you are targeting.Deborah Carney

As loxly said, changing domains is risky. If you must, here is what the big G recommends:
See the section on Moving to a different domain down the page.
Good luck!Jason Rosenbaum

I have to do this for a domain as well.
We have a site going from .com to .org and I am worried about it due to the incredible backlinks and (for us) good PR.
Thanks for the link================================================================
Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

I'm also working with existing domain name that someone already adopt. I'm thinking of switching domain name down the line. Thanks for the article!
