    Hola,

    I have a company locally that makes my 9-5 and funds for everything else. I moved ~1 year ago to another close city nearby and would like to transfer my city/geolocated domain name juice from one town to another. Should I 302 the pages? Forward the domain? Use WMT to process the "move"?

    I have found a wide variety of answers from my search so hope for some better more reliable info if ya can.

    Thanks

    302 is a temporary move. You would want to do a 301 re-direct which is moved permanently to the new domain which will carry forward a good portion of PR and all the backlinks associated with it. Make sure you do the 301 redirect through the htaccess file to get full benefit from it.
