Will domain registration changes ding me in Google?


Written by:

>>CUTTS: Hello. We have a question from Scott
Clark in Lexington, Kentucky. Scott says, “When you move a domain from one registrar
to another or your registrant information changes very slightly, for example, a new
phone number, will Google ding you for instability at the registrar?” And my answer is, “No,
probably not.” Certainly, people need to change their information. Sometimes they change registrars.
That’s completely normal. That’s completely, you know, expected behavior. The only times
that we try to really keep an eye on that is, you know, if we think someone as a spammer
might be trying to buy someone’s domain only for the links or, you know, buying an expired
domain or something like that. But there’s plenty of times, you know, when you’re switching
to a new address, you’re switching into a new phone number where it does make complete
sense that all that information does need to change. So we try to be very smart about
it and you should never see any differences if you’re just a regular person. And the hope
is, you know, if you’re trying to do something sneaky or spammy, then we might pay a little
bit of a closer eye. But in the typical case, I really wouldn’t worry about it.

    Thanks for the reassurance, and three different shirts in a row! I'm shocked!

    Domain registrations are typically important and, to be honest, I'm with you on this one, Matt. It's simple, people may change their addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, or what have you's, but Google has to be alarmed if ever these changes are numerous in a very small time duration. Another thing to be alarmed of is that when such domain registration's name is changed from time to time as well.
