301 Redirect Problems
301 Redirect Problems

 4:56 am on Apr 20, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have 2 sites
1. www.widgets.com
2. www.blue-widgets.com

Widgets.com is using a 301 redirect towards blue-widgets.com and its been more than a month to this

But still the page rank has not been transffered

Can anyne let me know how much time does a 301 redirect takes to transfer page rank and other stuffs

I'm having the same problem, did you get PR during this update? I didn't.

hmm ... it may be a little stupid question. but i cann't configure 301 redirect on one of my sites.

is wrote such a text
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}!^www\.domain\.com
RewriteRule (.*) [domain.com...] [R=301,L]


1. at first i don't view this file in my dir
2. it doesn't work.
if i try to access to domain.com, it's don't redirect to www.domain.com

is the problem in server configuration?

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}!^www\.domain\.com

Is there a space character between %{HTTP_HOST} and!^?

If you are on an apache server you should make sure, your provider is allowing you to rewrite stuff.

Is there an "RewriteEngine On" on in your .htaccess file? You'll need that Statement first to enable rewriting.

thank you very much.
yes i missed this part [RewriteEngine On]

another question.
can i do redirect from this part of my site [/news/] to the main domain using 301 redirect (it's the old homepage and there are a lot of sites that linked to this folder)

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}!^www\.domain\.com/news
RewriteRule (.*) [domain.com...] [R=301,L]

Got the Page Rank on this Google Update

Site went up from PR 0 to 5

I think it takes around a month for the Page Rank to get transfered from one domain to another

Related question (at least i think so :-)): if you do a 301 redirect from site1 to site2 and site1 has a penalty, will this penalty be transferred to the site2 with 301 redirect?

I'm still seeing a grey bar, the site had pagerank before the 301, and then went grey, it's been 3 weeks.

It took more than two months for PR to transfer for us. Basically, we had to wait until the next PR update (the one that just happpened last week).

We're still waiting to be restored to the SERPs! When we 301-d, the old domain was removed from G's SERPS within 48 hours, but the new domain name didn't take its place.

unfortunately, i don't get any answer to my question.

is it possible, using 301 redirect to move one from one folder (/news/ ) to my main page?

last month my site have huge problems with db, apache and hosting, and after this the only page that is in google's serps is ... the old homepage [/news/].

so that's why i need to move google from here to my new homepage.

i did
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}!^www\.domain\.com/news
RewriteRule (.*) [domain.com...] [R=301,L]
, but unfortunately it don't work.

pls correct me, if i'm wrong.

thank you
