The best method to redirect a site if they change domain is 301 right?

I think there may have been miscommunication here Matty.

By “not doing it”, I meant duplicating a site across several domains. You just don’t do it. Google will essentially determine which site it wants to display, and de-index the others – or worse still, penalise you for it, and flush the lot.

If you’ve changed domains, then yes, set appropriate 301 redirects at the server level, set a change of address within WMT and set your preferred domain.

Now it’s time for a cuppa.
