If I have a free yola account @yolasite.com and then I upgraded to silver yola silver so I am now .org

do I have to have another webmaster code? Google has verified the free name but will not verify my .org site. Do I need two seperate codes.
Does webmaster see my old site different to my new site?

Also any links I have made with the free site, are they lost or do they get put to my main site? I have made some relevant linkbacks but have used my free @yolasite.com on the linkback.

If someone looks for the free site on one of my old posts, will they get moved to my upgraded site automatically?

Thank you

If you originally verified your site as a subdomain with Google Webmaster and submitted a sitemap, but have now upgraded to a custom domain you will need to re-verify your site with Google Webmaster and submit another sitemap. This will allow Google Webmaster to begin returning statistics on your new custom site.

What you need to do is remove the original Google Webmaster meta tag that you put into your home page and go back through the Google Webmaster tutorial for the new custom domain you have now published to. Here is a link to the tutorial: Google Webmaster Tutorial.

If your subdomain is redirecting to your custom domain, links that you have out there will automatically go to your new custom domain so you would not have to worry about that.

Kind Regards,
