Hi all !!

I have uploaded an update to a site on last Saturday. That update
consisted of a full redesign of the whole site, keeping the home page

Using a statistical program, I saw that Google bot was in the site
yesterday, but today, when I make a search, previous links are found,
not the current one. For example, searching for "Moraga puyehue" the
first result is the link: which
corresponds to the content previous URL. The new one is at which I can reach when I browse
using Spider simulation at SEO chat.

Any hint would be greatly appreciated.

Crawling is not the same as indexing. Just because your site is
crawled doesn't mean it will automatically be indexed. It will
probably be indexed when it has a goodly number of inbound links
coming to it from quality sources. If you've changed all your file
names and your directory structure then Google may well treat this as
a new site and you'll lose your rankings.
Is that what you did? We'll need to have a bit of a think if you did.

If you changed the URLs (usually not a good idea) then you might still have
time to add 301 redirects.

Make sure each old URL redirects to it's new URL with a 301 redirect.

It isn't good to change URLs or filenames, but that might help.

Are the numbers the same or are they different id numbers for the old/new
