If you read my original email I have tried that!! I can not rename my site to my name because i am using my name... I have done this before ,I am not new to this.  When i changed my my site to the newer one i just created under blank1 , now that is the name it wants to publish under blank1@homestead.com instead of e1rentals.com where I was associating it to, If I try to change the name after logging out of everything it says name is already being used..((by me of course))  what do I do now?

Will changing my site stuff put me back at the bottom of the ratings?

Thank you guys... I guess I was scared by labeling blank1 my site name and was trying to rename it e1rentals (the actual name), maybe a little more detail in relaying how the renaming goes instead of just saying click the yellow button. LOL

Its working. https://e1rentals.com/ It can affect rankings but try keeping the page names exactly the same, this will help regain the credibility and rankings quicker.

Understandable, I see how it may be intimidating. I will get that updated with more thorough wording. You are welcome. :)
