    Hell9, as the title states I recently changed my url on wordpress from http://domain.com to http://www.domain.com and 2 days later my pages vanished from google. Is this normal? And how long does it usually take to go through? Ps: My homepage is still indexed however with the new url so its not a penalty.

    Yes this is normal! Why did you decide to change the URL structure?

    You should do a 301 redirect for all the pages in your .htaccess or nginx config.

    Thanks for the reply. My backlinks were directed to the new url structure.
