I just upgraded another site to paid domain status and was wondering if anything will change as far
as Google site registering, or my incoming links redirecting. I read some threads started on this topic but they didn't give a clear answer. Do I need to get new analytics code etc.etc.

Hello Luis,

If you upgraded to a custom domain through Yola your yolasite.com subdomian will automatically redirect to your custom domain so you won't loose any of your incoming links.

If you originally verified your site as a subdomain with Google Webmaster and submitted a sitemap, but have now upgraded to a custom domain you will need to re-verify your site with Google Webmaster and submit another sitemap. This will allow Google Webmaster to begin returning statistics on your new custom site.

What you need to do is remove the original Google Webmaster meta tag that you put into your home page and go back through the Google Webmaster tutorial for the new custom domain you have now published to. Here is a link to the tutorial: Google Webmaster Tutorial.

You will also need to add your new site to your Google Analytics account and put the new code on your pages.

If you have any further questions please let me know.
