    Exclamation Old pages redirect to New Website


    Hi Guys,

    we have redesigned our e-commerce website and launched a newly designed website with same domain name. I have submitted website in Google webmaster tool and waiting for the crawl stats. But in Google pages it is showing old pages of website and when we click on those URLs it takes to new website but message comes "page not found". Can you please let me know what can be done to improve indexing of newly designed pages of website.

    Thanks

    I'd double check all the 301 redirects have been set up correctly from the old site.

    Thank you very much for your reply. I have checked Google webmaster and found that there are 486 pages not found. Please let me know if we implement 301 redirect on pages..is it good for website ranking?

    At this moment in time, only you will know if you implemented the redirects correctly... (Google can be really slow to migrate sites at times and will show many "errors" whilst it sorts it out).

    To double-check, go to a "header status checker" (loads online) and put in one of your old URL's...
    It should redirect to the new URL (and show you the path with the 301 redirect).
    Or check your root .htaccess file and see if the redirects are there!

    Not so much good for website ranking as essential (if your old site had any rankings/backlinks, this will forward the "credit" to your new pages so you aren't "starting from scratch").

    Is it good to redirect all 404 pages on home page if 404 pages actually do not exist on the back end system but still showing in Google result pages.
