It all started a year ago when I set up a new domain with a typo in it. This is precottharvestfestival.com
After realizing mistake, I kept the mis-spelled domain but also added the correct prescottharvestfestival.com I set the wrong one to MIRROR the correct one. I have verified the actual files and WP installation are at the correctly spelled domain.
SO this year (its a once a year event…) I rebuild the (WordPress) site and all’s well UNTIL I go to check stats at my Google WebMaster dashboard. Nothing is showing up in the incoming links, visits, etc. Yikes. (I hadn’t tracked the site last year so it was an unpleasant shock.)
I followed Google’s advice to look up the site using site:prescottharvestfestival.com and NOTHING comes up. Its all coming up under site:precottharvestfestival.com, the mis-spelled domain.
Additionally a regular Google search using the correct name of the festival gives all results at the mispelled domain.
SO my question is - why? and should I try to switch it? Or just track the mis-spelled domain on Google WebMaster and try to straighten this out AFTER the festival is over? I don’t like the wrong domain showing in the URL of Google search results, but I don’t want to lose whatever rank has been achieved…
Any help much appreciated!
