I asked this question a few weeks ago on concerns of submitting duplicate content and after acting on replies, i've been waiting to see what would happen.
The story so far:
1. Old site - www.rightmove2my.com
2. Changed company name so therefore needed to change website address to match....
3. Therefore New site - www.yourmove2my.com re-designed but with most of the pages containing same info as the old site.
4. Set up a permanent 301 redirect via the hosting company which works fine, informed google through webmaster tools - redirecting from old site to new, submitted new site, submitted sitemap etc..
After a few days, 20 pages showed as indexed. Chuffed with my own success and as i do quite frequently anyway, i updated my sitemap, re-submitted it and then the next day.... Zero pages indexed.
The old site still contains the old pages etc.. and according to webmaster tools, all of the pages are still indexed.
Am i doing something blindingly obviously wrong?
As usual, all help is gratefully received.
PS. Previous thread for this was at New site, preventing duplicate content from old site
