Domain change of ownership. Need all pages removed from index.
The main domain points fine it even picked up the new title buut all those other links point to outdated pages that don't exist.
As in your previous response is it just a matter of time? Do I set a roboots file to exclude every sinvle of the 20K plus pages that are gone?
Thanks for any advice and help
Thanks for the reply John!
My main concern is that the old site had several million pages, most of which are no longer there. Also, I believe there was quite a bit of duplicate content (due to the URL structure) that we may still be getting penalized for.
I was hoping to take advantage of the "start from scratch" option (mentioned here: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1269119) -- which it says is not a valid use for the URL removal tools.
Is that no longer an option? That would help speed up the process and ensure we have a clean slate going forward.
I believe the site(www.rentalcompare.com) has much to offer people seeking rentals as there is no other site like it on the web. We had the rental industry knowledge but not the technical skills so we created the right data organization but the wrong physical web page organization. We recently took six months to strip and rebuild that, but now are penalized by the millions of pages of what Google perceived to be duplicate content.
Thank you for your help!
