We recently (last Tuesday) set up a 301 for www.a?.com to redirect to www.b?.com.
As of late last week a?.com was no longer seen by Google and site b?.com had a PR of 0 and could not be found in Google. This is still the case today. Anyone have any ideas on how long it will take Google and the other biggies to see the new site?
I have a limited amount of time before I have to surrender the a?.com domain and would like the majority of this to be done by then.
Both domains are currently on the same server as we do all of that in house. I just checked all of the Google datacenters and found the old one gone in all and the new domain non-existant. (in all)
Sure appreciate the help and take care everyone.

Then longer for you to get your rankings back (if you had some).

I don't think anyone can tell you exactly how long it will take to see the redirect followed correctly... Inktomi recently stated that they weren't very good at following redirects and I imagine the new incarnation as Yahoo probably has the same issue.
Most people recommend 2 months as the optimum time to give yourself on getting a redirect or site move properly settled but it doesn't usually take that long.
The wise thing to do (especially if you are dropping site a) is to check the backlinks to site a and get them switched to site b if at all possible.

If I were you I will check following thing out:
1.Check how the 301 setup at site #a, since this is http head info, the browser is useless. You really need network sniffer to check tcp/ip package one by one. if 301 setup correctly you should be fine at least G said so.
2.Check site #a's log file to see the pattern of google visit for last three month, this will give clue when you back online.
3.Change the content in site more often before you switch the site. The often site's content change the often google visit the site. (now is too late, but good for #b to #c)
4.Buy or ask favor to put url link to site which has high PR and daily update content. This may not get you index at same time parent site. but at least put yours in G'db
Just my 1.5 cents
btw no matter how hard you work, you would not get G index you site less than two days, but for two days I have patient to wait.
Just an other 0.5 cent
