Google: Site Merges Take Longer To Remove Old Domain Than Site Moves From Google Search

Google Merge

Google's John Mueller said that when you merge two sites together, the domain you are getting rid of and not using anymore will take time to go away in Google's search results. When you do a site move, like moving to a new domain but it's the same content, URLs, etc, then that is much faster.

John Mueller said on Twitter "No, you don't have to do anything to get it removed - it just takes a lot longer when you merge sites rather than move domains. If you use the removal tools, you won't get any traffic at all for the old domain, so I'd recommend not doing that."
