Hi charlotte

I will ask one of our SEO specialists to assist you with your question about traffic if you move your site away.

One question that may help, is whether you are moving your website (content, etc.) or if you are just transferring your domain?

Thanks

Hello Charlotte.

If you want to redirect the page to a new one when someone comes, you can simply add a code to your site. But before adding this code, save the page as and then go back to that page. This is just so if you don't need the page to redirect anymore, you can have a copy just in case something messes up.

So remember before you add this code to save your page as.

Drag over an HTML widget and then paste this in:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="600;url=http://example.com">

Now, do not click on Save until you have in the site you want it to redirect to. Once you save it, save your page RIGHT AWAY so it wont redirect because it redirects in the site builder too.

So change http://example.com to what ever website you are redirecting to (but, keep http:// in front of it)

100 = 1 seconds until redirect

200 = 2 seconds until redirect

300 = 3 seconds until redirect

400 = 4 seconds until redirect

500 = 5 seconds until redirect

600 = 6 seconds until redirect

ETC...

I hope this helps!

If you need any help with this, or if you need to know more about it let me know.

Hello Charlotte,
Can you explain a bit more for me as to what you mean by "direct traffic away". Are you wanting to move your content to a site with another host, or do you want to give a link on one of your sites to direct people elsewhere. If you can give me more specifics on what you are wanting to do I can give you some instructions or suggestions.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hi Charlotte rex,

From what I am hearing, correct me if I am wrong, you have a domain name that is purchased from Yola and currently published to a site built with Yola. But, you would now like to use this domain name for a flash site that you have created elsewhere?

If your domain name is purchased from Yola, you can edit your DNS settings so that your domain points to your new website provider. Depending on the host you're moving to, it would either be editing nameservers or creating an A Record. This means that you will still get a renewal reminder from us 11 months after purchase. If you choose this option, please view this tutorial: DNS for your domain purchased from Yola.

Can you let me know if that is not your scenario and the above information does not help and I would be happy to further assist.

Kind Regards,
Emmy
