I have a Wordpress site in Network mode, using subdomains.
I had a site indexed as subdomain.example.com.
I recently purchased a domain, example2.com say.
Using the plugin "WordPress MU Domain Mapping". I remapped subdomain.example.com to example2.com. The plugin performs a 301 redirect.
Google Webmaster Tools gave me a message saying it could no longer access subdomain.example.com.
I have created a new GWT website profile for example2.com.
I used a server redirect checker, and subdomain.example.com/* is being redirected to example2.com/*
I have 3 questions:
- Both subdomain.example.com & example2.com are returned in the SERP when I search for my site name. Should I delete subdomain.example.com from the index? Will this delete the link juice that subdomain.example.com will pass on to example2.com?
- What do I do with the GWT profile for subdomain.example.com? Do I delete it?
- I guess I have to wait for the PR of example2.com to increase from 0? (subdomain.example.com has a PR of 4)
Thanks for any assistance
