    Hi

    I have a blogger with custom domain .com from 2008 and maintained perfectly till 2014 (Mar) and had good rankings in G. Due to some problem i haven't renewal my domain for 4 months, so i lost that domain and it was backorder to high amount, so i registered new domain with .org (same name) and added to blogger custom domain.

    As it is blogger, i just promoted the content, but still my website is not gaining any ranking with .org, even with domain name also it is not showing in 1st. How to regain my website back in results. It was in live from past 3 months with same content (Blogger).

    Changed robot.txt, created new sitemap.xml and submitted in webmaster tools, but still no use......

    Help me out in this please...

    How many content you have published? and did you use the same content which you used for your previous domain?

    Unfortunately, you have to start all over since all of the backlinks and domain history from the COM domain do not transfer over to the ORG domain, so you will not be focusing on regaining your position in the SERPs as there is nothing to regain.

    Even though your ORG domain has the same content as the COM domain, this is still not enough to regain 6 years worth of backlinks and authority. It's fine to use the exact same content so long as your content does not appear verbatim anywhere else on the Internet (Churn and Burn SEOs reuse old content with new domains all the time).

    At this juncture, I would suggest that you contact the webmasters of the sites that have inbound links pointing to your old COM domain, explain the situation to them, and kindly ask them to update the link where the new content is located. This should help your ORG website rank substantially.

    If you did not keep a record of your old backlinks, then you can always build new backlinks.

    you can redirect old pages from your blogger site to the new site and that way retain some traffic and link juice to the new site... Log in to your dashboard--> layout- -> Edit HTML and add this between the <head></head> tags: <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=yoururl"/>

    Lxrseo mentioned that they had lost the domain because they forgot to renew it 4 months ago and also because the backorder price was too high, so Lxrseo bought the ORG version of their original COM domain. Because of this, 301 redirecting the old pages wouldn't work in this case since Lxrseo does not have access to the old domain, therefore they will not be able to procure the link juice and traffic from the original COM domain.

    i think your should spend some money to renewal your .com domain, and then after you regained the domain, u just need to redirect 301 to passing old link juice from your .com domain to your new domain
