    Hey

    Any advice on switching domains? The file structures and content wil all be exactly the same just the name is going to change..

    Site is around 4 months old and does rank.

    Just do a 301?

    Ya think 301 is the way to go!

    How many pages you got? If it's less than 500 prob easiest to do manually - get text sitemap from XML-sitemaps, then do a big of search and replace and make a htaccess file of 301 redirects from old page to new.

    If it's more than 500, go look up Regular expressions - and take some paracetemol ;)
