I'm using the Yoast SEO plugin on a WordPress site on a new, more memorable domain to replace an old static HTML site with no SEO. I've followed Google's documentation for moving a site, set up 301 redirects from the old domain to the new one, and filed a change of address in the Google Search Console. However, after a few days, the old site still shows in search results, and is ranked higher than the new one if you google our company name.
And, if I try to set the preferred domain in the Google Search Console Site Settings for the new site, I see this in place of the options to prefer www/non-www/http/https:
Not all options are available because of a Change of Address request related to this site.
I've read of some cases where this condition has lasted for least least a month.
Is there anything more I can do to fix this? Have I done something wrong, or do I just need to wait, and for how long?
