Support » Plugin: Simple 301 Redirects » Won't Redirect

  • Hi there,

    I recently switched my domain name from a blog site to a website. So my blog site it now found at Since I did that all of my blogs that are found on google still have the old name of “” instead of “”. I tried the plugin to redirect but I have not seen any changes. About how long does it take for good to pick up on it?
    Also..just to make sure I am doing this correctly….
    for the request do I enter “/blogtitle/” or do I enter the entire url of “” ?
    I hope this all makes sense!! I am new to word press 🙂

    Hi Ashley,
    The redirects should take place instantly. I suspect the issue that you’re having is that the plugin is installed at which is, for our purposes, an entirely different site than There are a couple of ways to resolve this:

    * Ask your web host to help you create a domain-level redirect from to If you’re using the same permalink structure, everything should just work without the need to even use this plugin.
    * If you have changed the permalink structure, you can still have your web host redirect requests from to and then redirect the posts on an individual basis.
    * Worst case scenario, you could run WordPress at and install the plugin there, setting up all of the redirects in the plugin. Your redirects would then look like this:

    Request: /blogtitle/

    The first option is going to be the best for you, and your web host should be able to help you set it up very quickly.
