2 domains - Redirect?

    Hi guys, need some advice on something.

    We currently have our site running from 2 different domain names. They both run a duplicate of exactly the same site. (Don't ask, this is the setup I found when I started here and I want to change it!)

    Lets call them 'blue.com' & 'green.com'

    green.com has the most indexed links, it's what they have been concentrating their link building on and generally does a lot better than blue.com

    However, I want to get rid of green.com and just concentrate everything on blue.com

    What is the best way to "fade out" green.com?

    Do I set up a 301 redirect on all the URL's for this domain and point them all to blue.com?

    Are there any other factors I need to consider?

    Hope that makes sense. Any questions, just ask...

    The solution you offered is the perfect one. set up a 301 redirect from the site you want to phase out to the site you want to keep and all should be well, benefits the domain you are phasing out should pass to the one you want to keep.

    Good luck.

    Oh good. I thought this would be the case but it's always good to have sites like this to check.

    Cheers temi.
