Old website still in Google search...

Post by rondi » Tue May 11, 2021 1:40 pm

My old website that I made with qaewb still shows up in Google search along with information from that site. And it shows up when I go to my domain without www. in front.

Do I need to make changes in qaewb to solve this?

I assume that if links are clicked you get an 404 error page since those pages don't exist anymore?
And it shows up when I go to my domain without www. in front.
What do you mean by this? Your old website shows up without the www. in front? Did you not remove the old site from the server?

I would suggest:

1. Setting up 301 redirects on your server thru your host to redirect those pages showing up in the Google search to the new page(s) on your website. Google will eventually update those links and the old ones will go away.

2. Submitting a new sitemap thru Google webmaster account to tell Google of the new pages in your site

What is the name of your site?

Right. I did not do anything to remove the old website from the server. How is this done?

I usually do it right on the server using c-panel and the file manager. Does your host use c-panel or h-panel?

I don't even know what c-panl and h-panel is...

Is there not a simple way to remove a website from the server using the quick n easy webbuilder app?

Via the publish settings you can 'Explore' the files on your website and remove them.
