In the midst of optimization my page - solutions2mortgage.com - I learned something new about my initial set up. i purchased my domain name through godaddy but created my site through wordpress then migrated to another CMS/Web host. In that process, I initially made a mistake in the 301/302 redirect. When adding my URL's to Google Search Console and creating Analytics ID's. I realized the mistake when trying to manage to URL's. If you redirect it correctly, you should be able to manage the traffic properly.
The point - Redirecting is easy, making sure you are doing it correctly can be quite complicated (at least it was until now for me). Now, not only am I managing one property correctly but I can focus on optimizing the pages and their content properly.
