    Correct site showing WRONG domain name! How to correct?


    I registered multiple domain names with the same web company. Only one has a hosting acct associated with it. Unknown to me, the web company forwarded all the other domain names to my hosting acct too.

    Searching for my keywords, google shows the correct web site (title, mete description, etc) but it's the wrong domain name showing in the google index.

    About 2 months ago I removed the forwarding. Now the domains except the one associated with the hosting acct just go to 'parked' pages of the web hosting company. But google never updated. It still shows the once forwarded domain name.

    How can this be corrected? I'm thinking of just deleting the domain names and waiting a month and re-registering them. Or xfering the wrong domain name to another web company and putting up a completely different site.

    Request a URL removal from Google Webmaster Tools.

    Once the URL is removed and you have created a new site with the domain - you can request for reinclusion with the same URL removal tool.

    Note - URL removed with the removal tool will be removed for a minimum of 90 days. However you can request a re-inclusion at any time during the 90 day period.

    Can I just move the 2 screwed up domains onto 2 different web hosting companies, put up 2 completely different sites, and then wait for google to re-index? Wouldn't that be faster than the 90-day removal thing?

    Or can I just take down the web hosting so when google crawls it they get a 404 error.

    Make sure the forwarding is a 301 and not a 302
