Hey guys, will keep this brief:
I own a massive forum that was recently switched from one platform to another, vbulletin to xenforo. Admins neglected to update urls and subsequently instead of my site . net I now had www . mysite.net.
By the time I saw this I basically had a bunch of duplicate content in the form of two urls for each page.
I've since put a 301 in place, redirecting all non-www urls to www urls but continue to lose site rank. When doing a site command for mysite.net there are more than 400k pages indexed, but when doing a site:www.mysite command I only get just over 100k. Any ideas as to my next step here? Should I go back to the mysite.net version of the forum since there are more than 3 times as many indexed pages? THX for feedback.

    Google won't crawl all the pages over night, it will take some time If you have all the old URLs being redirected to the new URLs.

    I would suggest scraping all of your new pages (posts/threads/cats etc..) and run them through a Ping Aggregator. You can use Linklicious.me, or Lindexed.com or whatever you choose. This will help Google get to them quicker.

    You can also create a Google XML Sitemap and submit this to your Google Webmaster Tools Account.
