    One month old, you should be fine, it'll just take a bit longer. How many pages are in the index? Do a search ( site: your domain.com) or what ever your extention is. If you pages are indexed you should 301 them to the new url.

    Its a sage bet is to just redirect regardless of age, means its done properly.
