    What are the things I need to update after this?

    Already done updating:

    • Nginx Config
    • Forum Board URL
    • Social Login Settings
    • Link Forums
    • Rebuild Sitemap
    • Cloudflare Page rules redirect
    • Welcome Message Links
    • Google Analytics
    • Added non-www on Webmaster Tools / Submitted Sitemaps
    Adsense revenue is affected a lot by 60%.
    I hope it will recover soon.

    Hi there,

    It looks like you've already done everything, I guess search engines are just going to take a little time to adjust to the domain redirect.

    Adsense will probably recover after awhile, just be patient.

    One thing I did for my forum is a find-and-replace on my posts text to replace all mentions of the www version with a non-www version, because users would often post links to other threads on my forum (e.g. internal links) and I wanted those to go to the correct URL too.

    What about your incoming links on other sites? Maybe you could contact webmasters to ask for them if they could, as a favor, to edit out the www from links on blogs, wikis, and other content that may mention your site. Might also be a great opportunity to reach out to other people in your niche (e.g. "By the way, I noticed a lot of links to my forum on your site, I was wondering if you'd like a guest article/interview for your site?" or "Your members seem to mention my site a lot so I want to give you a special coupon you can provide to your members...").
