Changing Your Domain Name Without Ruining Your SEO

I’ll cut to the chase. Dreamhost, one fo wordpress’ recommended hosting companies (and my personal favorite so far) wrote a great blog on how to change domains and not destroy your SEO.

If you don’t need to change your domain, DON’T! You’ll notice they say that you will REDUCE the amount of damage done. You’ll still probably have a dip in traffic. If you can bear that in the short term and if in the long run it’s better to change domains, go for it. If not, just don’t change your domain.

If you change your domain name, follow their advice. Make sure you forward all necessary URLS and pages. Make sure you update all your social media links to your site and then notify Google through Google Search Console.

If you don’t use Google Search Console… I don’t even know what to say apart from “you should get it!” It’s by far one of the most valuable SEO tools you’ll ever have. I use it almost exclusively.


What Now?

What now? What’s important?

I was going to write some stuff about crypto currencies and markets etc., but then I looked over at my nearly 4 year old daughter…

Though I’m trying to recession proof the businesses of the people I work with and put in place plans to force ahead and grow through the recession so they don’t come out in the same state they entered into the recession, but honestly, work burnout is a real thing. Making bad decisions is a real thing.

I just finished a blog post for crypto investing (according to me) and though it’s a great time to buy, there will be a lot of times to buy over the next year more than likely, so don’t go all in just yet. Pace yourself (my opinion). I’m increasing the amount I invest in all areas I can, including my business because it’s a good time, but I’m stretching it out over a year at least. I haven’t put all my chips on red. I put them all on “be reasonable and hang in there” haha. That is of course with a plan to grow that I actively work on nearly every day.

Make sure you invest equally in all aspects of your life and business. I have a business counselor, a counselor counselor, I still study things and learn and I have a financial advisor. I also have general counsel for general decisions.

So what to do now? Don’t panic, try to invest steadily in all aspects of your business (including yourself) and keep pushing forward.
