Big Domain Oops

    I think I made a boo-boo.

    I had a blog called, but I changed it to I knew crosslenz would no longer work, but I ran into some unexpected troubles and now I’m stuck.

    I can still see my old blogs and they’re under the new domain when I click them.
    However, when someone searches from the internet, my blogs are still under the OLD domain, so when you click a link from Google, say, it will try to go to a URL, which of course no longer exists.

    Do I need to map all the crosslenz traffic to fencingwithink? Or do I need to make fencingwithink its own domain AND map everything?

    Or is it too late?
    Help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is



    Actually a fixable goof – since is still alive, but has the content deleted – you have two choices

    1) best is to buy the site redirect upgrade to send traffic from to your new blog –

    2) leave a note on that you have moved and have a link to your new blog – the bad about this is that your visitors will need to do a new search on you new site or page around to find what they were looking for

    Just clearing the content but leaving the blog itself was a GREAT move


    Well, when I type in, it just says it’s a dead link, not a website anymore. I think that the content is there, but there are a bunch of dead links floating around the internet while the live links are stuffed in some magical internet corner without light.

    However, you’re right, redirecting would fix the dead link problem. Oy…
    Any other suggestions? Thanks so far.



    Nothing Found
    It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.

    That is because you have deleted all the content from the blog and there is no Post to display on the front page – normal behavior


    I see…
    Okay, so how do I map the old site to the new site if they’re both sites?
