    Guys, I am now #1 for my desired keyword is one of my firsts sites that I targeted before focusing mainly on "local" results for the US.

    Anyway, I try to do a better job of KW research these days, but I'd like to get this site #1 on australian google's SERPs for my KW.

    Can I purchase a EMD.com.au and 301 my current (.com .net .org style) site to it? I'm not as concerned with losing US traffic, I'm more concerned with being #1 on aussie results but I'm not willing to devote the time to rank an aussie site independently right now. I'm currently on page 3 in the aussie G. Everyone on page 1 is a .com.au

    Can I 301 redirect my current site to a .com.au site and retain all of my offsite SEO work and hit big on the aussie google?

    Can't even tell you how many thousands of dollars I've lost screwing around with a website that was already ranking high and profitable by doing something silly like a 301 redirect or changing theme template, so if your US #1 has any value to you whatsoever ... don't do it.

    That being said, you're dealing with local and regional results, 301ing a successful US site wouldn't do anything for ranking in australia.
