You’ve had your domain for a long time and it has served you well. Today, though, you’re looking to expand your online business and the old domain just won’t do the trick. You need something new, fresh and exciting and perhaps you’ve already registered the ideal name.

There’s just one problem.

Your old site has earned a good search engine ranking for your best keywords. You’ve got tons of “link juice” to both give and receive - and you don’t want to lose that.

Nice.... I just went through this for and it was not pretty.  I’m still cleaning up the mess. :-)

Bookmarked! I will need this soon, as I want to move a website to a standalone domain, without losing my high position in Google.
