For years, I've had two domains (this is a ficticious example):
They both do okay in terms of ranking for their keywords. However, I noticed something weird:
If I search for "abcd", the domain,
allbenchescatchdirt.com, shows up as the first result and
abcd.com shows up as second.
I have a 301 redirect on
allbenchescatchdirt.com and the title tag of
abcd.com is "abcd" and I've made sure that the keywords are placed accordingly in the content.
I know it's difficult to provide information without knowing what the real domain is, but from a first glance, any idea why this is the case?
