Permanently moved to my new web address

After buying new domain http://www.techmindz.com, my older domain was still accessible. I had completely abandoned its usage, but two days ago, I visited it just to check and was amazed to see its page rank had gone to 2. I was shocked and spellbound. I admit that I had done some intense SEO myself, for it. But still I hadn’t expected its page rank to go up in such a short span.

I wanted that page rank on my new domain. But page rank didn’t transfer. Although, www.techmindz.co.cc and www.techmindz.com pointed to same domain, google treated them individually. I set up mod_rewrite for my old address. It forwarded my old address to new address and now typing old address in address bar forwards it to newer address. It also sends a 301 MOVED PERMANENTLY header to search engines telling then that my older domain has moved to newer domain. This way PR (page rank) gets transferred too.

Here was the code that I used in .htaccess:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^techmindz\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.techmindz.com/$1 [L,R=301]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^techmindz\.co\.cc$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.techmindz.com/$1 [L,R=301]
 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.techmindz\.co\.cc$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.techmindz.com/$1 [L,R=301]

Its been two days since I made this change. I expect results within 2-3 weeks for my PR to go up. At the same time, my SEO will also be done.

Waiting for next month to see the changes. I hope I get what I expect.
