SEO: 301 Redirect

Yesterday, I was reading Jon Waraas’s Blog on using a 301 Redirect on all of his websites. He explains that using this little tip will send you to when you type This avoids search engines from giving credit. Instead your main address will receive the credit. Basically, this little tip on improving your ranking will merge the two addresses into one.

How to do this?
You might be wondering how you can do this little SEO tip too. All you have to do is access your .htaccess page and add the following code.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(.*)\.sitename\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

Replace “sitename” and "TLD" with your site’s name and TLD.

I’ve decided to begin adding this code to all of my sites too. I’ve already added the code to my two flash game sites. 2 sites down 16 sites to go!
