Well,im in the same boat you guys are in and I changed my domain name last year and still can not recover.
However, I think I made a fatal mistake last year when I redirected 4 smaller sites to my new site. One month later my new domain crashed for all results in Google. All pages were redirected to the correct page for the topic. However the new site was only online for 2 months so I dont have enough data confirm this was the cause.
I am ranking in bing and I think I maybe able to rectify the problem in Google if I kill the redirects, but I get tons of referral traffic from the redirects.
Is it possible to block google from accessing the old domains so it does not see the redirects anymore, or is it too late to fix this. I dont want to stop the referral traffic, just block google bot from seeing those links from the redirects.
Hope this makes sense?
