    Domain Change Help

    Hello guys, hope everyone is doing well.

    I got a problem. I've decided to change our domain name from
    globalpay.me
    to
    magicpay.net

    Now, I want to be very cautious about this because of all the SEO work that I did on globalpay.me site in the last few months.

    I redirected the links from globalpay.me (301 redirect) and also let google know that I did the move from the Webmasters tools.

    Is there any other step you guys recommend for someone like me to take?

    Thanks,
    Rami.

    globalPay,

    The link provided y Deadmix is very useful. Other than what you have done, I would only suggest that you create a good user experience for your visitors by directing like pages to like pages. For instance don’t just redirect all pages to the home page of the new site. Make sure the old pages are pointed at relevant new pages wherever possible.

    Here is another good resource from Google on moving your site,

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn
