I have posted the same question in Webmaster General Category, but unable to get answer. I don't know where it fits best.. but here you go:
I had a page A with good back links, but due to ugly url i have redirected page "A" to Page "B" unfortunately ranking went down badly.. also the backlinks those are previously linking to page "A" are no more there :(
my question is that:
can old backlinks for page "A" be automatically created for page "B" due to redirection, as we all know that if we redirect a page, the PR of old page is automatically shifted to a new page.. can we think the same for the above said method.
when i search for page "B" using link operator, the old back links are not shown.. also the page "A" loosing its indexing due to redirection.. thats okay! but what about backlinks are ranking? are they coming back with previous state or not?
