New site not updating links RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just recently re-launched a new site and it changed from .cfm to .aspx. However, Microsoft's search is still showing all the old cfm links. We have 301 redirects in place so the traffic is going to where it should. I added the new site and the xml sitemap at webmaster.live.com.

    How long does it take for the new site and pages to be reflected in search results? We've been live with the new site for 2 weeks, and the old site was up for years.

    Hi Toby,


    It is hard to say when they will leave the SERPs as it is not on a set schedule. However, Live Search is not handling 301s very well which might be compounding the issue, so you might want to use 302s while we work out the bug.
