    What are the consequences of a domain change?

    Hello all,

    Presently, I have a site http://css.somepeople.net

    I wish to move it to www.somehelp.co.uk/css (the domain is an addon to somepeople.net)

    What can I expect from my rankings etc if I go ahead? in particular, Google and Yahoo.

    Short term you will take a hit, of course the size of the hit is relative. Yahoo editors do things at their own pace especially when it comes to the free listings which yours would fall under. Google on the other hand should not take as long to update.

    If you go with it, you should create a custom 404 with static liks to the new pages. This will assist those coming to the older version to find the new domain and will also help Google in the same manner.

    Personally, I would move it to its own domain entirely qdcsstutorials.com deanscss.com

    If you want a new domain let me know, I got ya covered

    Do a 301 redirect from the old domain to the new one.
