I am trying to figure out best-practise for moving a single page of content from one domain to another in a way that will preserve search engine ranking. I have found plenty of instructions for wholesale domain moves, but this situation is slightly different.
I have a blog, one page of which gets a lot of search traffic for a specific term. I would like to take that one page of content and move it to an entirely new domain, which I will then use to start adding new content to.
My plan so far:
- register the new domain
- remove the single page of content from the old domain
- put up the single page of content on the new domain
- set up a 301 redirect for the URL of the page on the old domain, pointing to the new domain
Is this the right way to do it? Is there anything else I need to do in order to keep Google happy?
