I am having trouble updating the URL of my first uploaded website that I made from scratch. I have changed the the URL and have submitted to Google, but when I type in the name 'example' into Google my old website URL (
www.example.com/example/) is displayed with the old title and meta tags. However when I type in
example.com, which is the new URL, it shows first and it's the correct website with the correct tags and title.
How can I make the old URL
http://www.example.com/example to just
example.com? I have taken out the
www. from the new URL, would that be a problem?
