    I wanted to place a keyword in my URL (not exact match but at least semi) so it helps with rankings for specific keywords (I'm seeing plenty of EMDs ranking very well).

    I read in passing that if you do a redirect, your links which point to the old domain still give credit to your new domain name, but that only a certain % of the juice is passed along.

    Should I bother to have all links pointing to the old domain changed to the new one? Or just simply build all new incoming links to the new redirected domain?

    Thanks

    Redirect the site first and then do the other

    Certain % of link juice, that thing doesn't apply anymore.
