Last spring, Google announced a new component to its Webmaster Tools. This feature, called “change of address,” helps web designers and webmasters alert Google if a website changes domain names but otherwise remains for the same purpose as on the original domain. Google will automatically update their index to reflect the new URL. This update remains in effect for 180 days. By this time, Google will have sent its regular web crawlers to index the site as per usual.
One of the most important factors to any business is the ability to find information. Knowing more about what is going on is critical in outpacing your competition. Google has long been regarded as the gold standard of search engine. Google’s willingness to constantly expand and improve their services ability to serve web users everywhere has led the company to search engine dominance. A cosmetic surgery practice would be wise to learn from this philosophy.
