My website is located at example.cc. Another domain, example.com, redirects to it.

I wonder why searching for site:example.com yields different results with site:example.cc? Shouldn't Google detect that this domain is just a redirection and make a clean up? I moved to the new domain a long time ago.

In Google Search Console, both are domains properties, but the example.com property doesn't seem to receive traffic anymore. Is it safe for me to request to remove results in example.com without losing my rank?

  • I don't remember the exact time, but it should be more than three months. – Ooker Sep 24 '20 at 4:21
  • How did you facilitate the redirect? Is the old domain still active? It seems that the old domain is still being crawled/indexed. – Greg Nickoloff Sep 24 '20 at 12:59
  • How do you know that it's still crawled? I use the redirection from the domain provider – Ooker Sep 24 '20 at 16:24
