Bit of background...
- used to have multiple sites i.e. www.bedroom-widgets.com, www.bathroon-widgets.com, etc.
- launched new site - www.widgets.com
- 301 setup on launch so that www.bedroom-widgets.com points to www.widgets.com/bedroom
- The server is hosted and is not Apache the CMS handles the directory re-directs
Everything has been fine, the main URL works fine. However, I noticed the other day that certain searches still produce SERPs that show the old domains - wierd thing is they follow the naming convention of the new site. So the directory structure after the domain is the same its just the domain which changes.
For example :
the old site never used the old directiry structure as this is a result of the CMS.
In all the campaigns I've run the old site URLs have NEVER been published, I dont understand how Google could product these URLs.
My hosting company doesnt seem to know whats going on, currently blaming the DNS setup. I'm not so sure.
Thought I would seek the wise and wonderful wisdom that can only be found on Webmasterworld!
