I just heard about using a 301 redirect at the Search Engine Strategy conference this week, and I'd like to find some directions on how to write one.

I want to simply redirect from one page to a page on another domain.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hi Michael_T

If your server is running Apache, try this:

Redirect 301 /page.html h*ttp://www.other_domain.com/page.html

(remove the * which was added to kill the link)
