    Default Domain 301 Question

    I recently just bought and got ownership transferred over for a high PR website in my niche. my money site, or main website is relatively new, and doesn't have any PR. Both are managed under my GoDaddy account. I'm going to use the high PR one to transfer links and authority to my new site, I was just wondering if it's recommended to just use GoDaddy's built-in way of 301 redirecting? Someone said before another way for me to do it would be to upload a html file to the high PR domain manually telling it to redirect.


    Also, after I have a domaind forwarded is there a time limit I'll have to wait before seeing the link profile/authority on my newer domain or does it take time for the changes to be visible?




    thanks in advance.

    Just do it server side rather than uploading a redirect file.

    If your using a HTML file then it wouldn't be a 301 redirect. A 301 redirect is when the web server tells whoever is trying to visit a website that its been moved permanently and the only thing that is sent are headers. If you use a HTML file then it would be a regular 200 code that is sent and the HTML code that has the user redirected. One way of having a 301 redirect is with a PHP script with this code:
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently');
    header('Location: http://www.websitetoredirectto.com/'); 
    exit();

    // Or you could just do this
    header('Location: http://www.websitetoredirectto.com/'true301);
    exit(); 
    Or, you could use a .htaccess file like so:

    Code:
    RewriteEngine on 
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.websitetoredirectto.com/ [R=301,L]

    ^^ I see, but that's if I didn't just do it by pressing a few buttons on GoDaddy's domain manager correct? Going to read up and see how to do it that way since it's supposedly suppose to take less than 30 seconds to put in.


    does anybody know the time intervals of when the links and authority should/can be passed over after the redirect?

    yeah I'm just going to do it server-side,

    there's an option for masking ... from an SEO-standpoint (and I am by no means a SEO person, just someone entering an competitive niche that wanted some more "advantage" if you will) should I enable "masking" or not?

    I appreciate the comments.

    finally did the 301 yesterday (didn't put any masking options on it after doing some research on it) GoDaddy had it up and going in about 20 minutes

    haven't noticed any authority or link juice passed over yet, pretty sure it's going to take Google some time to crawl and notice the redirect's been done. thanks for the posts you guys.
