    301 redirect old domain to new one.


    Hi,

    I have a site that is visable under 2 domains (old one and new one). I had decided to 301 redirect from old domain to the new one (site structure is the some for both sites, so all old pages from old domain redirect to ne one), because it's the name o my business now. Google did follow 301 redirect and my new domain showed in the serps where the old one was.
    For a week my new domain had been bouncing in and out of the serps. Now it's totaly out. I can't find my old or my new domain (both sites indexed, but no rankings for keywords). What can be wrong ?

    I did the same 3 months ago. The old domain ranked #50-60 for my targetet KW and the new was not even in top 1000. When i made the 301 the new site showed up in the serps and were there for a week. It disapered and were gone in a month. Suddenly it came back even stronger than before and now ranks #10-20 for my KW.

    So my advice would be to wait it out.

    Yeah.. even when i know some site falls and I need to do some work then wait a bit to see the results... I FIND just can't so a i build another LANDIng site... so I wait... to the landing the site to catch then i wait again... then i am starting to write articles then i wait for them to catch then i say to myself maybe i need to buy more domains.... maybe i need this maybe that by the time i finish waiting ... i spend alot of money and time ...

    ANYWAYS WAITING is impossible. do somthing while you wait.
