If you do a 301 redirect to domain b the traffic will only last short term, when google spiders domain A and notes the redirect , Domain A will lose rank on the keywords. Also remember that domain A will no doubt have a higher PR, more backlinks than Domain B.

If you are going to do this make sure you do it in google webmaster tools so you can notify google of the change,

Hi zippybungle2003:
Thanks for your input.
If I ever go on that route, do you think I can achieve the redirects from Web master tool?

I mean, how can I notify google and still maintain the good ranking for domain B?

Thanks

In webmaster tools there is a section which automatically notifys google that your " moving domains". This is the best chance to maintain ranking.

The problem with google is they NEVER give feedback to anyone, no matter what we do, its all down to experiance...mine is they will send the traffic initialy then its up to you to build the keywords to your new domian by the time the traffic starts to die off to domain a. In advance on dmoain A

1. You really need to do a 301 redirect for all http requests that are going to the old domain.
There is few ways to do this.
One way is using .htaccess file You can redirect from domainA.com to www.domainB.com

1a. Create file named ".htaccess" if Your site doesnt have it already paste this in it:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !domanA.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domanB.com/$1 [L,R=301]

1b.  Upload Your .htaccess to the root of your domanA.com

This will tell visitors and google that you are using the new domain

2. Go to google webmaster tools and submit the change

3. You should notify as much as possible sites that You have changed doman name so they can update links on their pages.

Best Regards
