    Hi guys,

    I had one site on .i*fo domain which was #7 in Google in 3 very low competition keywords. When my business grew up, I decided to buy .c*m domain and change domain to more keywords related. I requested change of address in Google and redirected my old site to new one. Everything was fine. I requested change of address on 29th January, on 31th new site was already on #7 position in the same keywords. Today, I've checked my site and it disappeared from Google in each keyword. but when I type "mynewdomain.c*m" in Google, it is in index. Old domain has disappeared from all keywords also. But when I type "myolddomain.i*fo" it is still indexed.

    Also, being absolutely de-indexed, googlebot still visits my site.

    Can you tell me, Google sandboxed me? Or is this something else?

    I've searched in Google for "mydomain" without TLD and my site appeared in search results. But main keywords still not appear. I think it's google dance... If it is sandbox it won't show any results. Am I right?

    1)If you don't see your keyword it is because your domain extension has no authority compared to the .info you previously had

    So in other words, if all your backlinks point to YourDomain.info then that's the domain with authority.

    2)Put Google Analytics on your website and ask for reconsideration for your site, and tell them what happened

    3)Build backlinks to the new domain
