    Hello, I have two blogs:
    www.111.com (old blog)
    www.222.com (new blog)

    90% of the visits www.111.com was having were from google. People were searching google for "this keyword" and finding www.111.com/thiskeyword on the top.
    This post was receiving hundreds of visitors every day!


    I created a similar post on the new blog. www.222.com/thiskeywordnew.

    I put a 301 redirect from www.111.com/thiskeyword to www.222.com/thiskeywordnew.

    Google immediately changed its indexes. When searching for "this keyword" www.222.com/thiskeywordnew was on the top and www.111.com/thiskeyword disappeared.

    www.222.com/thiskeywordnew was having many visitors for several days! But... it stopped :(

    Now www.222.com/thiskeywordnew for "this keyword" dropped drastically, and I receive 2-5 visitors per day.

    I wanted the new domain to have many visits and slowly stop using the old blog.

    Did I do something wrong? Can I repair it somehow?

    did you keep www.111.com and www.222.com online all time ?
    in my experience, google just switch www.111.com positions for the www.222.com.
    I had to do that. some keywords have dropped, but it came up after some good quality links.
    i just could not wait to see it come up naturaly.

    What kind of links? You mean backlinks in other domain pointing to www.222.com/thiskeywordnew? Or also more internal links from 222.com to www.222.com/thiskeywordnew?

    Yes, both the sites are online all the time. I just redirected 1 post of the old site, to the new site. Only that post that got a lot of traffic because was on the top of google.

    So what kind of links you suggest to create?
    I understand I have to wait and everything will be back to normality? :)
