    Website relaunched: Both old pages and new pages indexed


    Hi all,

    We have recently made major changes to our website and relaunched it. We have changed URLs of some pages. We have redirected old URLs to new before taking website live. When I check even after one week, still the same old and new pages also indexed at Google. I wonder why still old pages cache is there with Google. Please share your ideas on this.

    Thanks

    avoid the redirects
    thereīs an option in google webmaster tools to remove links
    remove all of the old links
    delete sitemap
    add new sitemap
    submit it
    submit your site manually again, still will not be instant, but with me some of the links already appear the new ones, and i also rebuilded my site

    You need to redirect all your old page URL to your new Page URL.
    contact to your technical person, ask him/her to open c panel of your website hosting, then open the .htcaccess file.
    In that file, you need to code all your redirection code.
    So there will be no 404 error.

    This ranking change time-frame topic crops up in many posts. There are two parts to it.

    a. How long before G deletes your superseded pages form its index?

    b. How long before you see you site changes reflected in G's rankings

    How long to delete old site pages will in part depend on how many there are.

    This is the most recent update from Google's John Mueller on how long it may take for site-wide changes to be reflected in the SERPs...

    21 Mar 2018: Google: Can Take 6+ Months to See Rankings Improve from Quality Improvements

    "So usually these types of changes take time, itís something where the algorithm has to kind of re-evaluate your whole website overall and a lot of low quality pages, they can play a role here. But sometimes thereís just so many other factors that come into play and thatís something that doesnít just jump back up."

    Surely expecting all old URLs to be removed from Google is a little premature?

    Also, does it not depend on how often Google crawls your site? Doesn't Google crawl bigger authoritative sites more often?

    Maybe being a little more patient and it will come!

    Be patient, you've redirected the links (check they definitely are 301 redirects) and just wait for Google to recrawl them. If you want to speed up the process you can:
    • Enter the old list of urls into a sitemap so Google (and bing) can crawl them in order without having to find naturally (Just submit into search console)
    • Fetch as google within search console

    Redirect Old links to new and update sitemap on webmastertools. Old links will disappear in 7-10 days maximum.

    Hi There,

    You have done the right thing by redirecting the old URL to new URL. One more thing you need to create a new sitemap with new urls and replace the old one with the new one. And then update it on google search console. Google might take time but it will be indexed soon.

    Thanks
