Organizing our domains to make the company most easily understandable by search engines
Posted on 2004-10-06
For my company I have two domains (an original, non-shoppable and a new retail store site) and two stores (retail and wholesale-not yet assigned a domain). I'm trying to figure out how to organize my domains to best optimize my search engine results.
The two domains are:
-about 8 years old
-likely to be linked to by some other sites
-has no current content
-currently index.html jumps to dolcemiastore.com
-used for retail shopping
-about 2 years old, but only used for about a month.
-unlikely to be linked to by any site
-a yahoo store
I am considering three domain layouts. I want to choose the one that works best for search engines.
dolcemia.com becomes the retail shopping site.
dolcemiastore.com becomes the password-protected wholesale shopping site.
dolcemia.com continues to jump to dolcemiastore.com and has essentially no content of its own.
create dolcemiawholesale.com, a password-protected wholesale site
dolcemia.com serves as a station, from which users can either pass to
dolcemiastore.com to shop retail or
dolcemiawholesale.com to show wholesale.
My main issue is that I want my retail pages to come up in search engines.
