    You need to add the code to the blog folder as well.

    You created a subfolder called "blog" right?

    Add the code there.

    Or do this in WP:


    c)Go to appearance
    d)Go to editor
    e)Go to header.php
    f)Put the following piece of code as the FIRST line before any of the other codes then save changes:
    -make sure to change the "http://www.new-url.com" to your money site that you are trying to rank.

    Code:
    [/COLOR][COLOR=#FFFFCC]<?[/COLOR]
    Header( "HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently" );
    Header( "Location: http://www.new-url.com" ); [COLOR=#FFFFCC]?>[/COLOR][COLOR=#FFFFCC]
    Thanks to bobbylove

    Erhm.... I dunno to be honest.

    I'm not really a super geek. But if I were you I'd probably just re-create the subfolder and add a HTML redirect (not install the WP again tho).
