I have a site that I want to migrate from one domain to another, the domain I want to migrate my site to currently has an existing site of mine on it.

For the sake of this question let's call the current domain example1.com, and the migration domain example2.com.

Weighing up the risks involved in the migration, I have found that the example1.com has a domain authority of 30 while example2.com has an authority of 15. I have got these metrics from Moz's MozBar tool.

So my questions are:

On migrating these domains, is this likely to cause a drop in rankings?

If I point both domains at the same site, with example2.com being the primary domain, will the authority from example1.com be passed on to example2.com ?

There will definitely be some link juice pushed over from the DA 30 domain to the DA 15 domain. But how much juice gets passed over depends on how relevant example1.com is to example2.com.

For example, if example1.com is a site to buy vinyl albums and example2.com is a site about cooking spices, then you aren't going to get much of a ranking boost from it. But if example2.com was a site about music, specifically selling vinyl music, then you would have a much better chance at a ranking boost.

  • Both sites are relevant to each other. So when Google crawls the new setup, will the transfer of juice happen straight after this crawl, or is likely to remain at 15 at first before it increases, therefore causing a hit in rankings? – danbroooks Nov 24 '14 at 16:29
  • It won't happen straight after the crawl, I'd give it a few weeks. SEO isn't an overnight task. – Trey Copeland Nov 24 '14 at 17:13
  • In fact, it could take a month or two. But you should be okay in the end. Just make sure that you are not breaking inbound links (if possible) since that is likely the bulk of the domains value. If you can overlay the two with the exception of obvious collisions such as the home page (for example), the better off you will be. – closetnoc Nov 24 '14 at 18:49

If you migrate the two domain names like example1.com to example2.com there is a little bit of rank is going down because the redirection is the one of the factor in Google SEO 200 factors so,

Do the better SEO for example2.com website and maintain the proper .htaccess redirection to your sites and maintain the Good content and Proper SEO. Your site will grow up automatically.
