    It’s not a WordPress problem. It’s a search engine thing. When you change your URL, as far as search engines are concerned you have a brand new blog and it’s starting again from zero. If you wait, search engines will eventually raise the rank of your new URL and let the old one fall by the wayside. Expect it to take about four months.
