If you are a website owner, you know that attracting qualified visitors to your website is incredibly important, and incredibly complex.
There are many methods that webmasters use in order to entice potential customers to their site—one of the most important and effective of those being Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
SEO is the art and science of driving the most qualified visitors to your website by attaining high search engine results. If you are not already applying the best practices of SEO to your website, you are missing out on qualified visitors ready to convert.
Thinking of switching your old-school web address to a .CO? Tempting, isn't it!?
Lucky for you, it's a piece of cake. The key to the process is ensuring that your site's search engine rankings and incoming links are kept intact. We've seen it done before and it works flawlessly. Angel List and 500 Startups are good examples of recent sites that have upgraded to .CO.
Google has already published documentation about this in their Webmaster Tools area. Start with Moving your site. In there, you'll learn the basics about 301 redirects, a command that tells search engines and users that your site has permanently moved. Simply put, if someone (including a robot) clicks on one of your old links the computer will know to redirect to your new web address.
