    Today I had creating google analytic profile and google webmaster tools for the new domain I had bought but something weird happened, after adding my new domain to google webmaster tools, I got love letter from Google which saying my site was low quality issue ...

    For me it was really weird because the old domain was fine and clear but when being redirected completely to the new domain, I got the love letter :(

    Anyone having the clue why it's happened to my new domain name ?

    Maybe the content is still registering as copied from the old domain?

    So I just need to remove all of the content from my site ?

    I just checking the index of my site on Google and it's still there or maybe the love letter was a false alarm because I got it after one minute I'm adding the new domain on webmaster tools

    what is the redirection you used? use wild card redirection means one to to one url match 301 redirection and wait until google index and identify the process.
