hi all and HELP!
I've decided to change my blogs address so that it would show my blogs name instead of the initial, random phrase. I've done this according to official wordpress support notes at http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/ ( I have opted against discarding my first blog and against creating a new username. resultantly, I am now controlling both blogs from one account with same username and password)
Everything seemed fine at the start, new address even had my old traffic count. All until I started googling up my blog under its new address: google only shows links to my old one still. So it seems like everything went ok on the inside, but failed practically. The old blog is now empty as all the posts neatly transferred themselves to the new address. Moreover, instead of deleting the old blog I have set it to private, so a referral through google ends up at a password protected, empty original blog rather than my actual one!
I was thinking about deleting the old blog altogether and wondering whether that would solve the problem?
The blog I need help with is gosiasdrawer.wordpress.com.
