I have my business to NC and need to change my website domain b/c my current site is specific to St. Pete where I used to live. I am afraid that once I change my domain name, I will lose my current Google reviews. I plan to keep the same business name. Please advise, thanks!

Thanks! Also, will I be able to keep my reviews when I update my new business address? From what I've read, it looks like it I update my address on Google My Business that everything else will stay the same. Is this true?

Thanks for your help! Again, is there any way to get a solid answer from Google on my questions? I have heard horror stories from others who have lost reviews and can never get them back. Thanks again!

you are here on Googles official help forum and got an answer from a
TopContributor

This should be sufficient
And nobody not even a Googler will or can predict what WILL happen in a
certain concrete case.
