    Two Domains One Site How Redirect?


    Hi folks.

    I'm in a situation where we have two domains that need to point to one site. Another business that we have a relationship with, wants ownership of their domain, while retaining SEO juice. The site will be published under our domain, which we own.

    They're concerned about branding and the sort, and have mentioned that their efforts on SEO will mean a lot.

    We're currently investigating the effect of a redirect (either 301, 302, 307, or meta refresh) from their domain to our true hosted domain to see what the ramifications of each are.

    I've been looking around and I've found that a 301 is the fastest and friendliest search engine strategy, however I am not sure if the SEO juice is retained on the bouncy domain (theirs), which they would want.

    Is there a way to accomplish this? Any advice appreciated.

    Cheers

    If you do 301 redirection SEO juice will transferred to new domain. If you don't want to transfer SEO juice, then do normal redirection.

    Why would you /not/ want the link juice? I'm not sure I fully understand the concerns.

    Perhaps in the case of a link based penalty? Still, it's debatable, whether you can block link equity by using something like a 302 rather than a 301. There are ways to do it by using an intermediary page that is blocked by robots.txt but that's probably a discussion for another day as it doesn't really apply to OP's question.

    Yes, true - that is my only logical reason for not wanting to do a 301. Just wanted to validate before I start typing away
