    I have a website with a .info domain which I changed to a .com

    All my site is redirected (301) to my new domain

    I have a few keywords ranked top 10. Now my question google will rank two times my site (.info and .com)? will replace the .info with .com in the results?

    I guess I have to link create bancklinks to the new domain.

    Thank you

    If you have created .com identical to .info in all the ways including page structure and done your 301 redirect properly - page to page, post to post, you should get a quick message in giggle webmaster tools about unnatural links - ignore it and wait for ranks to come up. Might take 2 weeks to re-index all the mess.

    Danny0085,

    As fatsteve mentions, you will start to see your new domain indexed in SERP's but you will also see the old one there for a while too. I'm not sure how long it takes them to update things but I have moved sites before and URL's with nothing associated with them but a server configuration file have remained in SERP's for a couple of months before being changed. The unnatural link warning is not something that should be happening either. I would say that if you see that, there is some other issue.

    Here are some good tips for moving your site,
