I made a common mistake when initially creating my site...I have been submitting my site as lost-angelz.com when I should have been submitting my site as www.lost-angelz.com (http://www.lost-angelz.com) and now search engines such as google wont index me because i have multiple indexes..so i created a 301 redirect as google instructed...but that redirect from lost-angelz.com to www.lost-angelz.com (http://www.lost-angelz.com) causes my site not to open...basically the 301 redirect wont allow my index page to open...what can i do to correct the situation...I really need for search engines to return my site in results but as long as i have multiple indexes they wont...how do i get rid of the improper format and enforce the proper format so that the 301 redirect doesnt make my site come up unavailable?

Also, if you use certain hosts such as office live, you should make you add the complete address. For example, http://www.blacktrump4life.com/default.aspx. I had problems getting indexed initially too. I heard that redirects actually hurt your page ranking,so be careful.

Good Luck,

Actually - you just made an error and left off part of the address - you shouldn't need a redirect - as it's not a different site - or to resubmit - just get your site out there the correct way with links back, articles, etc.

By the way - both ways you mentioned are the same address and Google is smart enough to recognize that. If you check on Google - you will find they are indexing you - have 25 pages - look here:
You haven't done anything wrong.
