301 Redirects But Site Map To Old Links?

 8:49 pm on Feb 3, 2011 (gmt 0)

Hi there, Everyone:

In about a week I will be redirecting about half of our 250 pages to a different site. they are all internal pages (one to two clicks away from the home page). Most of those pages have little to no PR from external pages, and their PR basically comes from the site's home page.

Should I keep the Site Map links up that link to their current address (which will be redirected next week)?

Or should I remove the Site Map links for those pages that are going to be redirected?

Or, should I change those Site Map links to the new URLs?

Thanks in advance.

Remove redirected URLs from the original sitemap and add new URLs to new site's sitemap at the same time you move the pages from one domain to another.

Eg. if you are moving page url-old from example1.com to url-new on example2.com
www.example1.com/url-old --301--> www.example2.com/url-new

Then remove www.example1.com/url-old from sitemap on example1.com
And add www.example2.com/url-new to sitemap on example2.com

You should do this at the same time you move pages and implement redirects.

Hi aakk9999,

If we redirect old url: xyz.com/price.asp?id=10 to new url xyz.com/price.asp?id=boxoffer.

For old url i have PR #4, back links and good traffic.
Is there any changes to loss traffic, page rank and back links?

Can you please suggest me.

Assuming all other things being equal then backlink power should be transferred, although Google said that little bit of juice is lost by doing 301

TBPR (Toolbar Page Rank) information you are viewing will disappear. It may come back the same on the next toolbar page rank update or it may not be the same. Last time Google needed almost 8 months to update TBPR so you may have to be prepared for a long wait to see what happens with TBPR. I would not worry about TBPR though.

Ranking may suffer for a short while impacting the traffic until Google starts ranking new page instead of the old one, my experience in general is that the new URL replaces old URL in SERPs after some time and traffic then recovers.

There are always risks, but the above has been my experience.

But you must do permanent 301 redirect and it must be in one hit.

Thank You. Any one else can suggest their experience.
