301 Redirect Still an Issue Today? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I set up a 301 permanently redirect for few urls using an index.php file at old location. Google changed urls in index within a week (new ones replaced old) and kept same positions more or less. Perfect, I might say :P

    With Live Search it's a different matter though. Old urls are disappearing from index, but new ones nowhere to be found! Is this a normal procedure for Live? Will appreciate some feedback and thanks for your help.

    Pasting header server responses here (all seems ok):

    #1 Server Response: OLD URL
    HTTP Status Code: HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
    Connection: close
    Date: Fri, 06 Mar 2009 13:15:12 GMT
    Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0
    X-Powered-By: ASP.NET
    X-Powered-By: PHP/5.2.6
    Location: NEW URL
    Content-type: text/html
    Redirect Target: NEW URL

    #2 Server Response: NEW URL
    HTTP Status Code: HTTP/1.1 200 OK

  • Will it be possible to have an email where I can send you the URLs please? It's for a client of mine and prefer not to publish any URLs publicly here.

    Thanks a lot,
