    So a few months ago I changed the url and name of my blog from Brain Burst Writing to Speculative Fiction Writing. But Google is still linking to my current site through the old URL and blog name. What can I do to catch Google up to the current name of my site so that it stops associating the old blog name with the new content? Thanks.

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

    Nothing.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting blog content, deleting a blog or changing the URL (blog address) does not remove any indexed content from appearing in the SERPs (search engine page results). Google and Bing only clear their caches of deleted indexed content that produces a 404 (page not found) every 3 – 6 months.

    Your best bet is to simply publish frequently so the new content on the new site places higher in the SERPs. See here for more tips > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/01/21/omg-i-cant-find-my-blog-on-google/
