    Domain redirection


    I recently just change my domain from old domain to new domain, i have few questions:

    1. How long normally will it take Google to change the domain showing on their SERP from old domain to new domain

    2. Currently the old domain there is no more cache is that normal?

    3. In Google Webmastertools should i create a new account for my new domain or just add it into my existing Google Webmastertools Account (what happen i create a new account and add this new one into Google Webmastertools)

    4. Shuold i delete my old domain from Google Webmastertool Account?

    Depends on site popularity and age.
    2. Currently the old domain there is no more cache is that normal?
    Not abnormal. Also possible to tomorrow see the cache suddenly back.
    3. In Google Webmastertools should i create a new account for my new domain or just add it into my existing Google Webmastertools Account (what happen i create a new account and add this new one into Google Webmastertools)
    You should make a move-request. -> Move Site (or something like "change of address")

    4. Shuold i delete my old domain from Google Webmastertool Account?
    No, just make a new one if you are in the process of a relocation.

    Take a look at Google tips for moving a website and follow the steps to ensure a smooth move:

    Following these recommendations should increase the likelihood that your site will show up consistently in the search results.
