    I have lots of backlinks from an old domain that we plan to change. I was going to do 301 redirects from old domain to new domain. However, we are listed in lots of directories...I do not have logins for these, but should I claim them and switch url or leave the old domain and rely on 301 redirects? I was thinking of using yext.

    Redirects hurt link juice transferred to your site. if old URLs have lots of backlinks your best move is to reproduce the old URL exactly in your new website.
