Question

How to remove site form google listing?

Hello all,

I have a bit of a conundrum for you. This one sounds pretty straight forward but I think it's a little complicated. Please stay tuned!

A while ago I created a website (squareeyedpictures.com) but decided the name was too long so bought a new domain (www.sqep.co) and put a redirect on the old name so that if you type it in, you will automatically be taken to sqep.co

Anyway, now when I search "Square Eyed Pictures" on google I can see both sites come up, but I only want sqep.co to appear.

I have done some research about meta tags etc, I believe this is how I would change it so that Google won't list the old version of the site. But I can't for the life of me work out where to even change these meta tags.

The old version of the site was hosted on hostgator and I used wordpress to make the site. The redirect is through godaddy. I figured that I should try and get into the old site's wordpress panel and from there I could change the meta tags. But the problem is that I can't seem to get into the old wordpress site. Because squareeyedpictures.com is being redirected to sqep.co, when I type in squareeyedpictures.com/wp-admin it just takes me to sqep.co/wp-admin. I seem to have managed to get into a log in page for squareeyedpictures.com/wp-admin but none of my usernames or emails are being recognised.

I am so stuck here, I don't know what to do to get that site of google. Please help!

Thanks
