Recently, we move our main site to different domain however i have few questions. (We did 301 Redirect for all the pages)
1. Its been 1 1/2 weeks i notice the old domain still showing in GOOGLE but no cache no nothing just showing DOMAIN NAME, is this normal?
2. When i search for new domain, since the old domain and new domain are similar name ,eg: ABCAPPLE (old) - ABCAPPLESAUCE (new). When i did that search ABC APPLE it show OLD Domain on top without any Title or Description or Cache (BUT it show the site links still) but second listing showing new site domain it has cache. Is this normal?
3. I have register new account for my new domain at Google Webmastertools should i do that? or just add this into the old Google Webmastertools?
4. If i decided to keep my new domain on new Google Webmastertools account, should i delete my old domain at Google Webmastertools?
5.how long normally it will change over from old domain to new domain at Google? as i mention above i did all 301 redirect and i even check on some sites to make sure my 301 is working.
seofish you could try posting this over on the google webmaster support group. You'll be able to post your actual domains there and someone might be able to help you debug.
If you user the Change Of Address tool you should see changes appear in the SERPs quite quickly. You would need to verify both domains in one account however for the tool to be used (so I assume you haven't used it?).
