Last week my web designer accidentally redirected my .co.uk domain to my .com one and now all my Google listings have dissapeared!

Google used to rank me very well when I was on the .co.uk domain.

How do I get my high ranking listings back as they were under my .co.uk again please?

( i did a site: commend for both domainsand all apges appear under both domains but when you click on the links for the .co.uk pages they all redirect to the homepage under the .com)

Should i park the .com or use it as ana alias or what? I only want the .co.uk for search engine listings as it used to work fine.

Thanks in advance

Place a 301 status redirect from the .com domain to the .co.uk domain and Google should sort it for you.

My first question how did your web designer accidentally redirect the entire site what a blunder.
2nd question is has this been undone as from your post they are still being redirected?
3rd question are both sites the same content?

If the sites are different content then just undo the redirect and give it some time.

Time is a great healer ... provided the designer didn't panic and do something silly to 'compensate' for the error, a couple of Google cycles should see the status quo re-established. Days on a large, busy site, maybe longer for a smaller, quieter operation.
