I run a forum using Invision Powerboard, when I did a search for site:www.exampleforum.com/lofiversion it shows 3 pages of content based on the lo-fi version. I added a line to block spiders from accessing the "lo-fi version folder" some months after I opened my forum.
Will having those lo-fi version results hurt and how do I go about removing those lo-fi version?
One last question: My forum url used to be example.com/forum/ a month later, I purchased a domain, exampleforum.com. I added a redirect, www.example.com/forum to www.exampleforum.com using Cpanel Redirect method which added a line to .htaccess file.
RedirectMatch permanent ^/forum$ http://www.exampleforum.com
Is this good? I heard about using 301 or 302 redirects which is better?
Also, google still shows the result www.example.com/forum when I searched for site:www.example.com/forum Should I be worried? Basically, I want google to delete all the results as www.example.com/forum/
Hope someone can help me, thanks a lot. :)
