google indexing

    My blog was fully indexed by Google. The webmaster tools indicated that all my web pages and about half of my images were indexed.
    After I've bought a new domain, the situation has totally changed, though my old wordpress domain is still my preferred one. Now, the webmaster tool show only 10 pages indexed, and none of my images.
    I wonder whether I've done something wrong. I cannot check the situation for the new domain, because inserting two validating codes is not possible. Please help me

    The blog I need help with is inafferrabileleslie.wordpress.com.

    If the problem is not clear, I can post pictures of the Webmaster tools graphics.
    The new domain is inafferrabileleslie.com

  3. If you only recently bought the domain, just be patient. It can take weeks, sometimes months, for search engine bots to find the content again in order to index it.

    But I don't understand why google should reindex the content. I haven't changed the main domain, it's still the same! The new one is just a redirect to the old one, that is still displayed in search results and working fine. I'm very disappointed, I thought buying my own domain might make the administration easier, and it's quite the contrary.

  5. You might find something useful in the replies on this thread:

    In the meantime, I'll flag this for staff to look at. Please be patient as they don't usually work at weekends.

    This morning the webmaster tools display the old good situation for my blog. Probably it was a temporary Google problem, not a problem with my site or a domain.Anyway, thanks for your help!

  7. You're welcome. If the problem is solved, would you please mark this 'resolved'. Thanks.
