    Its easier for people to remember so I won it on auction yesterday

    but now im not sure how to go about using it, and not losing search engine ranking, can I use both the .net and .com?

    You can use both but do not put the same content on both sites... you may also want to have a link those sites together as I do that with a lot of my sites and get a second chance to make money off of my visitors.

    Depending on how much time you've spent and authority the old site has, you can do a 301 redirect, which tells google that you've permanently changed the site.

    Google 301 redirect and you'll find some sample code. Make sure and set the refresh to 0.

    You can move your site to a new domain and do 301 redirect from the old to new site. I am not sure how to do it correctly for the inner pages though.

    i don't know full details....don't neg rep me if this is that far off haha -
    my friend was telling me something about how you can transfer all the authority and link juice of a domain to a new domain, its something you submit to google.

    sure someone has heard of this too - comments?

    You can do the 301 redirect...but it doesn't seem to pass all the link juice as I just did something similar with one of my domains.

    In regards to google, it helps if you put in a change of address within their webmaster tools. When I first did the 301 redirect my google listings dropped out after about a week. After the change of address in webmaster tools my rankings came back...but not as strong as they were previously.

    In my experience the 301 redirects have worked very well just going from one page to another. It might take a little time, but it works.

    If you have deep-linked pages make sure you establish the redirects to the exact page on the new domain. Don't send them all to your home page. Send them to the most relevant page on the site that has the best content to rank for your previous keywords.

    Could I just leave everything on the .net and forward the .com to the .net

    if that makes any sense, that way I remain .net but if someone were to type .com it would take them to the right place.

    Or is that a stupid idea?

    Build a complete new site on the .com and rank it.
    Play the SEO game with yourself and keep on trying to outrank each site against each other.

    Keeps you on your toes while having 2 fingers in the same pie ;-)

    Aaah! I have 2 domains myself that compete with each other and was wondering what to do with it. Thanks for the tip. I am gonna try that. Should teach me more than a thing or two.

    Play the game, hopefully you get both sites in top ranking places on page 1 and more chance of people hitting you up.

    Everyones taste changes so what you may think is a top notch, dogs bollocks of a site at #1 might not be as appealing as the dogs dinner of a page at #2 but if both are yours then happy days innit ;-)

    As said above rank that site and keep it as a backup incase anything suddenly happens with your old site !
