    Alright guys, this is kinda like a continuation of the thread at http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/help-ranking-dropped-like-crazy-after-301.876668/

    To cut the long story short, I did a 301 from a relatively decent domain to my money site.

    It has been slightly over 4 days since this was done, and I have received the message "Increase in 404 pages..." within GWT. Under the crawl errors, it shows a mighty long list of the 301ed domain's indexed pages (that now direct to the Homepage of my money site).

    What should I do next? From what I see there are the following options:
    • Ignore it totally
    • Go to crawl errors in GWT and mark all as fixed
    • Others (please advise)
    Thanks beforehand for any input.
