    Hi everyone,

    We are thinking of changing the domain name of a site that was auto submitted causing us to receive a huge number of unwanted links, including porn sites. The links from other search engines are all right.

    1. Do links from a search engine affect other engines?
    2. If I change the domain without using a 301 redirects, I will be deleting all my link? Is there a way to retain the relevant ones?
    3. Is 301 redirect my best option? Are nofollow and robots.txt not so helpful?
    4. How am I to delete these links?


    Thanks!!

    I think your site was included on a link farm, Try to contact the web master or administrator of the sites and ask them to remove your link.

    Why do you want to change the domain name? Those links may not be doing your site any good, but they are probably not doing it any harm. Perhaps there are other reasons why you want to change your name, but I wouldn't change domain name just because inappropriate sites link to it.

    Yes Fergal Is Right. If you don't have any other option than only change your domain name and yes 301 redirection is the best option so use it if you are changing and don't try to delete those links but try to get some quality back links, it will be more beneficial.

    Is this site you're talking about by any chance the same one you mentioned in this thread that was banned before that you're trying to get re-indexed?
