    Dear Blackhatworld members,

    I have a site domain.com , but the url is too long and include " - " in domain name. Then I want to move it to a shorten domain like domain2.com. But I feel worry a little bit of this way. Because I moved my blog from blogger to wordpress with share hosting with redirect 301 before. I heard other said that we only redirect domain for several times or it's would be bad for SEO.

    Then , Now I want to redirect my old site to my new domain, then it's possible?

    And If it's ok, then what way i can do ? Redirect by changing htaccess file or redirect with redirection plugin for all blogspot and page? Which method is good for SEO?

    Sorry for my bad english.
    Thank in advance.

    It's a type of redirecting, there are two types : Redirect 301 permanent to new address, and Redirect 302 temporary to new url / domain

    Redirect 301 the old domain to the new. Maintain old paths, so old-long-domain/path-here goes to domain2/path-here

    If the new domain is https, redirect directly to https, don't make double redirect -> http -> https

    If you got search console, use the address change function. That's it in 3 months all the previous stuff will have moved over and probably settles in up to 6 months max.

    Hey I made a redirect from http -> https before for old domain , and www. domain -> domain. com , also.
    Is it ok if I will make a 301 redirect domain to new domain like : olddomain. com/path1 -> newdomain. com/path1
    Because i made 301 redirecting domain about 3 times before. Then I afraid that they will be lost seo ranking score if i move it to new domain with 301 redirecting again.

    If the previous 301's didn't settle and you redirected again, then you're leaking juice everywhere. Gotta wait in between redirects until the previous site is no longer on the index.

    Better if you contact your hosting provider and ask them to fix redirection with htacess . When i redirected domain "A" to Domain "B" i just go for help to my hosting provider, please avoid to use any plugin because Maybe possible old domain juice not pass to your new domain and definitely it will stuck ranking of your website. Hope this is answer your question thank you .

    It depend. New sites take months. Established high DA sites take days or weeks at most.
