    Is this normal of Google with 301s?


    Okay, a while back, we changed our urls. We 301 redirected the old ones to the new ones.

    When I do, site:OSNsupersite.com, I see the old urls listed as supplemental results. (mainly on page 3). Of course, when I click on them, I am redirected to the new pages.

    However, here is where I am concerned. If I click the cache, I see my pages with the old URL and my old Pageranks (all zero now)

    Is this because Google has not crawled the new pages yet? Should I expect the new URLS to be indexed soon and ranked accordingly?


    For instance, old URL, http://www.osnsupersite.com/default.asp?ID=oculoplastic, shows a page rank of 3

    This address is now redirected to new URL, http://www.osnsupersite.com/sectionContent.asp?sID=78, with a page rank of 0

    Thanks guys!

    Yup! G picked up the 301's but has not updated cache yet. Be patient... it all happens in accordance to the Google clock not ours.

    Similer thing is happening to me although I know google has a more recent cache as it showed it last week.

    40 days since I did a 301 on bransoncritic.com. It was a pr6 site for 2 years and now it is a pr0. It had 4000 links in G and now only has 65. I went from 1500 unique to 150 a day.

    Lesson? Do not 301 from .org to .com during your money making season. It looks like it will take months for G to re-index site. I have pointed fresh links, and used Webmaster central at G to notify change's. I also set the non www to .www to keep BL's in line.

    Google is so slow these days

    Didn't use 301 Redirect


    Back in may I upgraded my store. Since I did it on a new server the domain did not change. Although some of the structure did. ie

    www.h2opoolproducts.com/catalog/index.php - old
    www.h2opoolproducts.com/index.php - new

    Would google penalize me for this? Could this be the reason my site has fallen so far in the engines? Is it too late to do anything about it? Under google sitemap I searched all the urls for my domain that came up as 404, which was almost my entire old site. They are still there could that also be part of the problem.
