I have changed the name of my blog from “blueelephantstitches” to “elephantinthestudy”but when I search in google under that name nothing shows up. what should I do
Blog url: http://elephantinthestudy.wordpress.com/
Post frequently and wait patiently. When changing any blog URL without purchasing a site redirect upgrade you break all the original links in that blog. Every link is broken and will produce a 404 (page not found) error when clicked. The search engines will take about 3 – 4 months to re-index your content again under the new URLs.
7. The final option presented on this screen allows you to discard your current address. This option will permanently disable the address and you will not be able to reuse it. Only select this option if you are sure you will not use the address again. If you want to redirect traffic to the new blog, you can keep the address and purchase the Site Redirect upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/
