Have build a site with adobe muse and successful uploaded (kinda)

because of the index.html it does not replace the existing site in the search engine and the old site still comes up when the domain is typed in unless index.html is added.

How do i work around this?

Just an update, turns out it was the FTP host and not me, they have to authorise the deletion of any old website/data on their half. Just putting this out there is anyone else experiences this, and also ask your FTP host to make the old url redirect you to the url with index.html if this is still an issue

Hi saft,

As you have uploaded the site to an existing domain, Google is still indexing old URLs.

We don't setup anything or control this from Muse, Site can be created in Muse. But this is a site indexing issue which is not related to Muse.

But this is a site indexing issue something not related to Muse.

As a workaround, you can create a list of URL from old site and ask google to remove it, manually, one by one using the link below-

You can also ask Google to crawl the pages again, as shown here-

the old site still comes up

just to be clear, the old site is still listed but when you click the link its in fact the NEW site that loads into the browser?

yes = follow the advice Ankush gave above

no = you have bigger issues and will also need to talk to your host about clearing their server cache
