    Hello!

    Usually I can get my sites to be indexed within 24 - 48 hours.. I made already dozens of sites and everytime i was successfull.. but not now.. I have changed my process only a little bit but I can't imagine that this caused the problem: Here's what I've done now:

    I have a wordpress site, let's call it A.. I built the site with unique content and SEO and I was indexed within 24 hours.. everything is fine.. Now I bought a domain B .. because I don't need the webspace of domain A anymore, I just deleted everything from the webspace and installed a whole new site for the domain B... it's a complete different niche and different site. The problem is, that the domain A is still connected to the webspace, as well as the domain B...

    In short: I deleted the first site and created a whole new site on the same webspace with a different domain..

    Now I notice that the Domain A is still ranked in google on the first page.. of course when I click on that link I am being forwarded to the new page which doesn't have anything in common with the domain A... But the Domain B is still not indexed... Although I've created the site 4 days ago..

    So is it possible that its the webspace? because the first domain is still linked to it?!

    P.S. maybe it's helpful that you know that I have a wordpress economy hosting account from godaddy.

    How long has it been for you now? Sometimes when there's a radical change like that, it takes time. A lot different than a brand new site that can often get indexed very quickly (even though it might not necessarily rank well after a few days)

    yes, search engines will take time before they delist or remove domain A, I think they may take up to 15 days or more.

    I have also noticed that there seems to be some slowdown right now where it comes to re-indexing a site.

    I ve had the same problem , and had to wait more than 3 weekse, so i can see the new site indexed, i don t know why is this. so it s ok , don t worry , in a couple of days, weeeks, you wil see your new site indexed.
    Of course if you would promote your new site via Adwords, you would get indexed, in 24 hours or less

    I was reading this a couple of days ago and I was getting worried. I just bought a site on Thursday and I have been working on getting it indexed since then. Checking every day and today its indexed !

    RSS submit, social bookmarking, sitemaps, and a couple of angela's sites and all is good in 3 days.

    even it is different content - you can redirect it. This is worse, your current situation.

    You should redirect your A domain to B domain. then B will be indexed quite quickly

    Yeah, I also found out that when the big G is taking too long to index my site, throwing variety of quality backlinks help my site getting indexed quickly.

    Simple add sitemap and get to know about your site within 48 hrs. It also tells you, what's wrong and number of pages indexed on Google.
