Changing domain name without losing ranking

I used to change domain name for some of my websites, too. While the temporary lost of ranking is unavoidable during the first 2 or 3 weeks, there is a high chance of recovery if you do it right. Here is one of the things what i did and i think they contribute to the restore of my ranking: 1. Update your DNS records. Redirect all old pages to the new ones using 301, can be done with mod-rewrite and .htaccess. 2. Add and verify the new domain in Google Webmaster and Analytics if you have not done so already. 3. Use the change address tool in Google Webmaster to announce Google that you have recently changed the domain. 4. Update your most important backlinks. If you have already did number 2 then Google will automatically attribute all the old backlinks to the new domains but it is still advisable to manually update all of the major backlinks you have to the new domains.
