I have a website. They changed their domain name. All of the pages are indexed in G.
I created an exact replica of the site with the new domain name.
in the old domain, I created an .htaccess file directing all traffic for the entire domain to the new domain. Basically using this:
Rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.newsite.com/$1 [R=301,L]
All of the links are redirecting properly. But how long will it take for G to drop the old links in favor of the new?
I assume the next time they crawl the site, correct?
