I have my web application named like www.myweb.com. I used this website over 3 years. Now I have moved my website www.myweb.com in a virtual directory as its new path is www.myweb.com/myweb.

When I search my content on Google it displays my old website path which is now moved.

  • old path was: www.myweb.com/vision/myvision
  • new path is: www.myweb.com/Myweb/vision/myvision

Please provide me a solution.

Since Google has index your old URL of the website then you have to do URL re-witting take catch old URL and redirect to your new URL.

Since I have hosted an application abc.com then all pages inside the abc.com like abc.com/index.html as been index to the Google but when I configured our web site open with www.abc.com then I have to write rule in the web.config:


        <rule name="Redirect to WWW" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url=".*" />
            <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^abc.com$" />
          <action type="Redirect" url="http://www.abc.com/{R:0}" redirectType="Permanent" >

Try uploading the sitemap using Google Webmaster Tools. It will re-index all your URLs.
