Hello :)
Sorry for my bad English.
I’ve created an online store website 9 months ago, but I was not happy with my domain name and brand so I decided to move my website to a new domain, I registered a new domain and asked my web hosting service provider to do 301 redirection, now it’s 5 months that they redirected my website and I really lost my ranking power, I had a really good ranks but now I’ve lost all of that…
My service provider redirected all the single webpages to my home page! So when my visitors find a page of my website on google they redirected to my home page (it was not like page to page redirect). I was wondering if that’s why google decrease my ranking power although it was a 301 redirection.
It’s been 4 months that my website’s pages are indexed in google with my new domain but most of my web pages are not even ranked in the first 5th google pages results like before..
Can anyone help me and tell me what should I do now? I really believe still something is wrong because my website is SEO friendly much more than other websites which are ranked better than me.
I know domain age is an important factor but I see new websites are ranked better than me with even less pages indexed in compare with my website.
Any solution?
My old domain:
My new domain:
p.s: i also used the search console change of address tool, still in google console > change address >it shows as under redirecting
Thanks in advance.

301 redirect is the most efficient and Search Engine Friendly method for webpage redirection. It's not that hard to implement and it should preserve your search engine rankings for that particular page. If you have to change file names or move pages around, it's the safest option. The code "301" is interpreted as "moved permanently".
