Hi James,

Have a look at some of Google's answers, e.g.:


>From the way you describe the situation, it is clearly the case that you
/primarily/ wish to transfer/preserve your PageRank; so I assume anyway.
You must also seek a solution that will redirect /all/ crawlers in the
right direction.

Write a mod_rewrite if you use Apache so as to indicate a permanent address
change. I think it is 301 that's the code you must pass. This way, you
allow the search engine to have the notion of a domain change.

Be very careful in the way you go about implementing this, or else...


Here are some pages that will give you necessary instructions:

   (Replace 305 with 304, 303, 302, 301)
