    Quick 301-Redirect Question

    My client asked us to build a completely new wordpress website for her with a new domain.
    Currently we are having the issue of our new website not showing up in the search results due to
    replicated content we believe and 301 redirects have been suggested to us.

    Her old website is built on GoDaddy website builder and does NOT allow 301 redirects.

    Would our best option be to point the old domain to the new website and install a 301 redirect plugin
    setup with the old website links?

    Any info would be appreciated!

    PS: Is anyone interested in making some extra money doing SEO? I am getting a ton of SEO work
    and I just don't have the time during the day to tackle it.

    If you have access to the domain I would point it to the new site. Any external links going to now 404 pages you would then be able to 301 to the new replacement page assuming there is one if not then redirect to the home page.
    I would assume you have changed the url structure so if the domain is now under your control you should be able to handle that as normal.
