    Not true.

    You can match on the HTTP_HOST and then rewrite the entire request to an entirely different domain, should you desire.

    I'm lost on the "search shortcut" section. I clicked on the link and was taken to example.com. It didn't tell me how many incoming links I have. I know it's something simple, but what am I doing wrong?

    This is a great thread! Thanks very much. I like the htaccess method of eliminating duplicate pointers to the domain.

    I was wondering if anyone can show me how to take that a step further. Using vBulletin, it loves to redirect people to the home page as "index.php". This is a bit annoying because the place where I want page rank most (home page) is constantly being seen as a different page (and has a separate page rank). I'm trying to solve that.

    I just want to eliminate index.php everywhere it is found.

    so this:

    http://www.example.com/index.php

    becomes:

    http://www.example.com/

    and this:

    http://www.example.com/index.php?this=1&that=2

    becomes:

    http://www.example.com/?this=1&that=2

    I have tried to mess around with mod_rewrite but I swear it just doesn't like me.

    This tool is no longer available on WebmasterBrain. It has since moved to the SEO Chat website.

    Why does my website have a higher PR with the 'www' then without it?

    An important doubt I have is: we can't change our own domain info?

    I have a site with 7 years, which means that I can't:

    - change my whois info, or protect it ?
    - transfer it to another registrar ?
    - change webhosting ?

    Or they will think I sold my site?

    It's a pitty, because since 2000 I've done this several times, and the domain was always mine...

    The internet is an ever changing world. We can't let it grow static.

    Sorry folks on my last post in this topic. Yeah, I'm asking about alexa ranking and we know that alexa is for traffic, right? when I wrote this post, all working in my mind is PR not TRAFFIC that's why I asked about this. But now I realized that alexa is for traffic not PR and I know already that my blog keeps on growing because as I've said last last day it hits 6 million + but now it lowers down to 2 million + meaning that it still growing.

    Great work stymiee on your SEO post. I disagree about one point. I do think that google ranks .com over other domain names.

    I have also noticed that some search engines are now able to read some javascripts text.

    You have a link Google Zeitgeist, it is no longer working, it should be google hottrends now.

    They don't and there is no reason to. there is nothing special about .com that it should rank higher so why should they do so? It's not the TLD that matters. It's the content.
