Ive recently acquired a new domain that i want to point at our existing domain, ive setup hosting for the new domain and then done a 301 redirect in the .htaccess file of the new domain to my existing domain.
I then wanted to tell google about this new site 301 redirecting to ourselves, so i set the site up in Google Webmaster Tools, I then added the site as the
www version and
non-www version. To make Google recognize the redirecting i fetched as google bot.
non-www site it fetched fine, it noticed the 301 redirect and then allowed me to submit to index.
www site it keeps giving me a "Temporarily unreachable" message for the status of the crawl (see below screenshot) - any ideas why this might be ?
Ive only recently moved the domain so i thought it might be a propagation issue, but its strange that the
non-www version worked which leaves me to believe otherwise.
www version of the site is set as the preferred version in webmaster tools)
