I am moving my site from oldurl.com to newurl.com. Do I need to ask google to empty the google cache for oldurl.com?


For the past 6 weeks or so, both version of the site have been on air, both Disallowed to Google in robots.txt.  Next stage is to replace oldurl.com with a one-page jpg for human readers saying "please go to newsite.com" (no link or redirection)  so old customers can still find me.


oldurl.com has died out completely in search results, but remains in the google cache if I search for the actual url.


I've been advised that all I  need to do is to remove the "Disallow" in newurl.com/robots.txt .


I would be very happy to think it really is that easy! But, I am concerned that it will be a problem to have the content of newurl.com present in the google cache of oldurl.com. Is it a problem, and do I need to do anything about it?
