Hello Experts,
Here is the situation. I have been in the process of building a new website for our organization and am about a week away from launching(hopefully). The old website is a horribly outdated static site built in front page. The new site is built on Vivvo CMS. The new site was built and will be hosted on a completely different server then the old site. We are using a Google custom search on the site. Right now I access the new site through a mirror domain which is ournewsite.dreamhosters.com
My question is, what would be the best way to index the new site for use with the google custom search since the domain name with change from ournewsite.dreamhosters.com to our actual domain name ournewsite.com? I would like to have the search on the new site functioning at launch. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance
