Incredibill, I changed domain names but changed layout and had professionals (real pros) rewrite all content. Trust me I knew the old content was bad thats why I rewrote it.
I have a good low bounce rate now and a decent time on site along with many page views from each visitor from the new content.
This rewrite cost a fortune and it was not from five and dime writers.
Im just wondering if the redirects from so many sites is affecting its ability to rank.
For example, if I type in www.oldbadwidgets.com (this would be one of the old domains) its showing up in google results with a cached copy of the new domain home page. Even though when I click on that result it redirects me to my new domain. I checked the redirect code and it gives me a 301.
I redirected this stuff last July/August and it does not seem right to me that its showing up in search results like that.
When I search for my company name everything that mentions my company shows up accept my website. It just doesn't seem right to me and I really hope its just something stupid like I just mentioned.
Any ideas why that might be?
