    Google Index's My site no More after domain move

    I have this site: Movie Trailers
    and have recently changed my nameserver settings on my domain in the registrar as I have moved to a different server.

    However, since I have done so Google does not visit or re-index new pages of my site anymore. I am also a part of Google News with no new articles shown after the domain settings change.

    Should I alert google? Or does it take them even longer to domain propogation?

    Thanks

    However, I changed the domain settings [nameserver, where to go]. I never changed the domain name itself. So is a 301 necessary for that?

    Thanks

    As long as your URL is the same, that shouldn't make any difference. Are you sure there isn't some other reason why Google has stopped crawling your site?

    No other reason, they stopped the news on day of the move.

    However, my stats now show 1100 visits from Googlebot for June. Maybe they are holding back to make sure everything is OK? They send the bot, but don't index news yet.

    They do however have a new cache, even though the new articles are not in either their news nor search engine.

    Hmmm

    Thanks

    You should contact google and find out what this is, specially since you are registered in the news service.

    I tried. Last time I had to contact them it took about a month to get a response.

    Hopefully this time it does not take that long. Losing huge traffic amounts.

    Thanks
