    Somethings gone wrong, recently big G was showing pages as .domain.com and some www.domain!

    I asked google to have everything as www.domain.com a few weeks ago and forgot about it!

    Today I have noticed that all pages with .domain have either been deindexed OR lost serp rank?

    wtf

    I have 301 from .domain to www.domain and have done for years?

    Any suggestions?

    Do you still get results when you search for "site:domain.com"?

    Check the corresponding settings in G's Webmaster app if you are signed up for that.

    Just make sure you change the address in Webmasters. Also set a canonical URL on your pages if you haven't.

    I understand that...but set up both domain.com and http://www.domain.com in Webmaster and change the address of domain.com to http://www.domain.com so it starts indexing correctly.

    It's either webmaster tools or your strongest file is with www.

    Sorry I dont quite understand. Is nt this exactly what you asked google to do. Ignore .domain and focus on www.domain? so any .domains indexed will be dropped or seen as duplicat content with your www.domain been the authority source of the content?

    Now this is fooking wierd!

    Remember that I have always had a 301 from .domain to www.domain and have always told google that we prefer www. but they showed .domain for months for certain pages

    Anyway its seems that we are being completly and utterly reindexed within Google.co.uk, I have never seen anything like this before.............its way more than a dance!

    Im now ranking again for brand and keywords, ok the odd ones have taken a hit but I can deal with it! And now everything is showing as www.

    I've made this transfer before for a domain and eventually the right canonical domain name showed up.

    If you have set it up in GWT then just give it a little bit of time.
