Hi,

My site does not have a robots.txt. I am trying to move my old site from one domain to the other one.
I created 301 redirect and repointed my old site to the new one. I am on dedicated IIS server which does 301 redirect, but now I am faced with 'supplemental index' and I would like Google to remove my site completely.

Can I place robots.txt file for two domains on my new server, how can this be done?

like if myolddomain.com then disallow else (newdomain) do the crawl
excuse my ignorance

If you'd like to remove the old domain from the Google index, look here:

[google.com...]

Well,

I don't know how to do it, My site (IIS server) is set as permanent redirect (301) so it does not have root and therefore I can not create robots.txt.

Now in Google I have new site plus old one which does not want to go away, I am afraid my new site does not rank well due to "duplicate content".

I thought G will remove my old site after few weeks but it is not a case.

Any suggestions, please?
