Old pages still appearing in Google?

I recently bought a new address for my Blogger blog, from yannbane.blogspot.com to www.yannbane.com. However, www.yannbane.com addresses do not appear when they are searched for! Is this natural? How much time will it take for Google to update its index?

yannbane.blogspot.com 301's to www.yannbane.com. Both are added to my Webmaster Tools account, but it shows no data for www.yannbane.com (strangely). And, finally, is there something I could do to speed up the process?

Unfortunately no one can say you when Google will. According to my experience it can take a lot of time, also several months.

Actually, I'm getting yannbane.com in positions 2 and 3 in Google (UK and US) for the term "tautological cascade", and site: command reports 29 results for the whole domain. The only thing outranking you, in fact, is your own WordPress.com site. So the lack of data in GWT is something else. Google knows you've moved.

Oh wow, now I'm on the second place! My old WordPress.com site is still outranking me, though. Well, I guess that kinda answers my question. –  akled Sep 11 '12 at 8:16
    
You can buy a redirect from WordPress, if you want to fix that: WP Site Redirect –  GDav Sep 11 '12 at 9:13
    
Nah... It sends out a 410, I bet it will be removed soon. Also, I didn't really want to buy anything from WordPress, I like Blogger more. –  akled Sep 11 '12 at 9:19
