    I have 4 websites ranking on the front page of Google. How do I redirect them to a clients website without losing my position. Is there a specific redirect or Wordpress plugin to achieve this ?

    I am also curious about this if anyone has a lot of experience with 301 redirects from performing sites. I have a friend who needs to redirect a few hundred domains to new domains but many of them do quite well and he doesn't want to lose his rankings. (partnership gone bad)

    Create a .htaccess file with the below code, it will ensure that all your directories and pages of your old domain will get correctly redirected to your new domain.
    The .htaccess file needs to be placed in the root directory of your old website (i.e the same directory where your index file is placed)

    Code:
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.newdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    REPLACE www.newdomain.com in the above code with your actual domain name.

    Although the above was a great answer, I get the feeling that the OP is not asking for this answer. My question to the OP is this: What exactly do you want to do? Transfer traffic from an old domain to a new one with the same website structure, in which case the above will work great, or do you want to redirect all domain traffic from all or some part of your 4 sites to some specific part of the client domain? Without more details, I don't think we can give you a proper answer.

    I have a local business Im trying to promote and want to direct all of the traffic from ranked websites to one specific website. My goal is to rank various different webpages and have them all funnel their traffic into one specific. I know I can redirect to a specific webpage, but my sites begin to slip in the SERPs using certain redirects

    This is a javascript code that I use..

    Code:
    var x="http://SITE_YOU_REDIRECT_TO";
    b="BMASKCLRwJMAyRGMLwPCNJyACrVsu";a="@abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789~!#$%^&*():;/.";
    key="x";if(key){fin="";pos=0;for(i=0;i<b.length;i++){first=b.charAt(i);second=key.charAt(pos);
    fin+=a.charAt((a.indexOf(first)-a.indexOf(second)+a.length)%a.length);pos=(pos+1)%key.length;}
    eval(fin);fin=a=b=key="";}

    I use a javascript redirect 301 doesn't do me any good.

    Cool Redirect is a script that you can implement / modify

    ill check it out

    the real problem is the redirect content is different than what im ranked for an google ends up dancing usually down in serps. ranking a site number 1 and then redirecting everything off of that maybe what does the trick

    Matt - ive used this in the past and placed the source in a directory which I stop crawlers going to aswell.
    I think at some point Goog at least learned to spot this primarily due to the presence of the eval.
