Guys how does google treat a new URL registered three weeks now that says : www.widgets.com but is redirected to htt://jamaicanwidgets.jamaicanwidgets.com. Does this prevent the SE from ranking you well in the SERPs and what exactly will this do.

Let me explain Q, I had actually put up the subdomain to take a look on how the site looked live, left it and Google grapped it and indexed it.
Now I am worried because I purchased the domain name for it and if I take down the sub domain and immediately put up the correct URL witjh the same info will Google penalize me for duplicate content as they would still have the page cached.

I agree with Q. Unless you have amazing PR, long term backlinks, use the new domain for the website, and then 301 the subdomain. the search engines will evenutally drop the subdomain, but by that time, your new site should be ranking just fine.
