    Exclamation New domain and 301 redirection


    Hi,

    I released a website "example.com" and it was indexed by google correctly.
    site:example.com home page and other pages are indexed now on google... One or two days after this, the client realize that we need to change the domain. Now it's example.org. Content stills the same.

    Now I have all pages from example.com redirecting 301 to the new website example.org. Should I do more beside a 301?

    When I search for terms on google, the old site still listed, plus the new website too. Is this normal? Is this just a matter of time for google understand the 301?

    The changes (301) were made a week ago.

    Thanks,

    it usually normal.. but you try to help google to recognize the redirection by gathering some links.. it helps..

    What do you mean by links? Like a link from othersite.com pointing to example.org?

    Try to get any of the 3rd party sites that are linking to the old domain to change the links to the new domain.

    It takes time to see changes in Google. Be patient.

    Alll dependent on how often they spider you and reindex you. Your cache date interval is a clue on the reindexing frequency.

    It takes a while for 301 to show up in the SERPs.

    If you have all pages 301 redirecting you have done the right thing.

    Keep the original site live for at least a year and concentrate only on the new site.

    It is worth contacting webmasters with sites that link to yours and informing them of the change so that they update their links.

    Other than that be patient.

    Given your comments, I'm suprised you are asking this question.
