This solves a decade old question by WordPress website owners and bloggers. How do I change my website's primary domain name without affecting my Google Search Engine Ranking?
Many bloggers and content creators have hundreds and even thousands of blogs that they'd completely lose backlinks for and SEO value for if they don't do this properly.
In my video, I give a couple different examples of websitea.com wanting to change to websiteb.com but implement proper 301 redirects.
Things you'll need:
1. WPEngine webhosting
2. The WPEngine Redirect Rules
3. The ability to change your A Record and CNAME for both domains
4. Google Search Console Access
