Help for a Single 301 Redirect

Hi,

I just want to implement following on my site:

Applying 301 redirect to a particular page of my site to my another site. e.g. www.mysite.com/about-us.aspx to www.mynewsite.com

I don't want to change any other pages of mysite.com, I am only intending to do redirect of a particular page to another new website of mine.

My concern is that if it is good practice to do so? Or if Search Engines will consider it as good stuff?

Can you explain why you are wanting to do this. From the sound of it maybe not as it seems the redirect is for another purpose other than what a 301 is designed for.

It's likely one line of code, maybe two.

What type of server is it, and what version?

e.g. Apache 2.3, IIS 7 etc.

I'm not sure this line came out as intended. (Crystal ball says non-native speaker.)

What confuses me is redirecting an "About Us" page to a page on a different domain. That sounds like it could confuse your visitors in a big way. After all, who is "us" in that case?

If you've got a group of domains all run by the same set of humans, then "about us" would always be the same. More or less. But maybe instead of redirecting you could try something with a proxy rewrite, so you're getting content from a different site without changing the address bar?

Hm. You'd then have to deal with stylesheets and images potentially being in the wrong place. Urk. Confusion.

Maybe you should just copy the page into the various domains, and no-index all but one copy.

welcome to WebmasterWorld, vatsalok!

this often depends on what the user would expect.

it also depends on how you are linking to the new/old url internally.
linking internally to a url that redirects to another url will not be considered "good stuff".

perhaps your "about us" url wasn't a good example for the actual page you are moving.
