This advice will leave your site dropped from Google, why advise users so badly?
Good vid, but those drawings suck
i need help, i accidently changed the URL name to an existing one and everytime i go on the website it refers to it as the other one and i cant even log into my own website anymore. Even links on the website it goes, straight to the other domain and i have no idea how to undo it! can u help please?
My old domain is 8 years old and the new is just a few months old…
Has anyone seen any evidence that Webmaster Tools – Change of Address tool is able to transfers longevity from the old to the new domain?
I can see how with 301 redirects Google can pass on the PR and re-index the new pages, but I am skeptical about Google’s ability to harvest the original domain’s reputation and longevity.
It is a great online training!
Hey Matt, what if I just want to change the domain? Nothing else will change but the domain and of course some description referring to the new name. Is it advisable?
again, thumbs up to matt, as always, this video is very informative!!
is any one can help me in this topic ? https://productforums.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!topic/webmasters/6siKRoHhxkY;context-place=forum/webmasters
thanks for your video! I am struggling with my wix webside. I want to redirect content into to different new domains. it is possible? I am using wix and there is only 301 to do on…the same old page and i can not find the way to divide my content into two new domain. Please help:)
Why don’t you answer any of your user’s questions?!
Did he just say "A new search engine comes along?" HaHa Google is doomed XD
All i did was change the domain, not move the site.. and i lost 65% of my traffic.. what the hell. 301 redirect in htaccess. all url structure and content was the same. Things did NOT go well for me.
What does it mean De-couple the things while revamping !
I mean which part of website should be revamp first to last to the another domain.
Great video, Matt. Super helpful. Thanks for the great content buddy.
This is so helpful. Thanks a lot for creating such an easy and helpful video. Really, thank a lot 🙂
Please, an stupid question, the content in my olddomain.com should be deleted? Or leave it there? For how long since i did the redirection 301 to my newdomain.com
Currently both installations are serving the same exact content, but I think that could create some duplicate content warning in Google
Hope you can help me with this question 🙂
your title "Changing your website’s domain name" for this video is misleading because it DOES NOT offer "changing" but instead, it explains how to MOVE content from one site to another with a different name. Consequence: I wasted my time.
Matt Cutts always like to use the words "We should be able to HANDLE it…" just to make things ambiguous with unclear promise, commitment and accountability.
What is the story behind to simply change the website domain? Not just portion of the website the main domain replace by another new domain very simple question!!!!
How to learn to drive a car, go inside the car, put the key in the sock, press on of the foot pedal on the car and drive. Thats exactly this video. My god.
Is this still applicable in 2020? I need to do this (moving to new domain) and I am interested if it will hurt my website reputation…
This is a great Video. I’m wondering whether a 301 would be better than a canonical rel to start moving the domain. Eventually they would be 301’s but wouldn’t it be better to start as a rel canonical to see if everything works fine and then move?

I’ve heard that .ws sites don’t rank in google. Is that true? If so, why, may I ask?
I’ve just changed my domain. Fingers crossed traffic doesn’t plummet :/
