I originally started using a
.do domain extension for my site, but later realized that this country specific domain would prevent us from appearing in search results for places outside of the Dominican Republic.
We started using a
.co domain extension and redirected all requests to the new domain using an HTTP 301.
The "Crawl Stats" in Google Webmaster Tools shows me that the
.co domain is being crawled, but the "Index Status" shows the number of pages indexed at 0. The "Crawl Stats" for the
.do domain says that it's being crawled and the "Index Status" shows a number greater than 0.
I also set a "Change Of Address" in Google Webmaster Tools to have the
.do domain point to the new
We're still not appearing in search results at all even for very specific strings where I would expect to find us.
Am I doing something wrong?
