Two weeks later here are the results:
- New webpage indexed.
- Old website almost fully delisted in Google index.
- New page now has a PageRank 4, SERoundtable reported that 301 redirects pass Google PageRank & signals in a couple of weeks back in February, looks like it’s true! :)
- Google rankings remain the same, a search for Google consultant is now showing the new version at #3, the same position as the old domain.
- Old domain homepage still indexed, internal pages have disappeared though.
- New webpage also indexed.
- The old domain is still ranking in Yahoo at #5. Yahoo! seems to take ages redirecting pages, the current #1 result for this search is a Wikipedia entry for Google consultant which was redirected to their search engine optimization page around 6 months ago!
- New page indexed
- Old domain has 2 remaining webpages indexed, one of them the homepage.
- New version is the one appearing for live.com searches, which is still at #1.
So far I haven’t seen any other ranking increases throughout the seoptimise.com domain as a result of the redirect, but to be honest I wouldn’t have really expected this to have a noticeable effect anyway.
