Hello yall...

The other day i was talking to a friend who said I should take me domain and split it in 2 words instead of the one that would not be reconized.

It made sense to me, so i registered another domain that had a - in it to seperate the 2 words.

After doing so, I asked my server provider whats the best way to go about this.

My questions were..

Should I move an index into the new domain folder?

Here was his reply.

"The best way to do this is to delete the new domain
from your domains list, then under the Domains icon, edit the existing domain and click on the button to add a Domain Alias.
Fill in and leave the checkboxes in the default
states. After about 24 hours, will properly resolve
to, without a redirect and without the need to copy
website content. "

That was what he sent me...So i did what he said, now the new name with the - now works and goes to my site.

My problem here is, and this is why im wring to you all here. How would i submit this new domain name to the search engines when there isnt an actual, lets say "Index" to point it to. Sure the allais goes to my default store, but shouldnt there be somethign for the engines to see when pointing them to the new allias.

The main reason i did this is to get more exposure in the engines to my main keyword, thus seperating the url to a better seen keyword with the -.

How would you all see this thru? Did I do it right based o nwhat my website provider stated?

Thanks all... I will look forword to any replies you may have.

You should not have a problem with search engines. They can spider your new domain. It will use the index page on your old site to extract the keywords, descriptions and all the good stuff.
