Hi All,
I plan to redirect one of my old domains with 301 redirect. But as I know it didn't work on Yahoo 5 months ago. Does It work now? Do you have any new data?

In advance thank you very much for your comments.

I'd like to see an answer from anyone following this. I was one of the 1st to notice it's 301 issues, but didn't follow it.

Are they cleared up?

I just activated a 301 test for a site placing in Yahoo. I'll try to let you know what the outcome is, if timely.

This was fixed during the last webmasterworld conference in Vegas in November of last year. Please feel free to test it if you care to.

If you 301 a domain to another existing domain the results show up in yahoo overnight (if not sooner). Not sure of effectiveness to a totally new/unranked domain...please let me know.

Interesting, MSN spider is insanely fast and their links checker was showing the 301 less than 3 minutes later.

It hasn't worked for a client of mine. We had placed 301 redirects in August 2004 and we're still seeing the old domains in the results.

Tim, do you have any suggestions as to why this may be occuring?

I put a 301 from www domain to a machine name a few months ago, for the most part, it picked up the machine name and dropped the old site, but still has thousands of pages not indexed yet.

I'm not sure if the links to the old site now count to the new site or not? Does anyone have any experience with 301 redirects and links in Yahoo?

This is what I have found, I did some 301 redirects about a month ago. Yahoo picked it up fine, has been crawling the site for a week and following the redirects. however it had not indexed the new pages. Last night, all of my old links with redirects were dropped from the index and Yahoo did a major deep crawl of the whole site. The new pages have not been updated to the index, I would anticipate that this will take a week or so for the next update to start seeing them.

hi all i have a question that may seem dumb

would the following be seen as a redirect
from widget without www to widget with www

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^widget.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [widget.com$1...] [R=301,L]

or is there a better way

thanks

I use this one:
------------------------

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^olddomain\.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [newdomain.com...] [R=301,L]

thanks Noximus

so would that mean the pr would no longer be split between domain without www and www so it all went to the www domain

sorry for poor try at explanation
I hope you understand what im tring to say

I am one of those that has been hit by url with no decription or title and when i looked at it I found also had pages on domain without www with listings
so hoping this may fix the problem
Am I going about it the best way as this seems to be a long term solution to a short term problem that will pay dividends over time

I need to redirect my site (that ranks well on yahoo and MSN) from [subdomain.olddomain.com...] to [newdomain.com....] What 301 code should I be using?

Also, if someone could provide me a link to a good step-by-step approach on how to go about the redirect procedure, that would be helpful.
