If I have site A which use 301 redirect to site B, but I have a lot of inbound links pointing to site A, will google and other SEs see these links as they are pointing to site B?

I asked something similar at the bottom of this page and got some replies.

Thank you Clint. Even that thread doesn't exactly answer my question, but someone said that the PR will be transfered to the new site, I think it's the same case for link popularity.

Anyone please feel free to let me know if I'm wrong.

Here's a bump for ya.

If I had to guess (and I by NO MEANS know what I'm talking about), I'd say the answer to your question is "no". If the SE can't see meta tags on site A or page A (and I was told it can't), then I don't see how it can see links on the site A or page A webpage.

However if you are speaking about exactly as you worded it..."inbound links pointing to site A", meaning you have sites that link to Site A, I do think in that case SE's would see it as pointing to Site B since they would be following the links, and after following the link they would then get the "point" to Site B.

Yes, Clint. I mean links from other sites that link to site A.

Simple answer - Yes. But might take a while before they attach the links to Site-B.
