  • Phil,

    what sort of redirects are you using? If they are 301s, they should inherit link rank.


    Wait. Found your issue: You are blocking us in your robots.txt:

    Disallow: /waypoints
    Disallow: /trigpoints
    Disallow: /routes

    Sorry I didn't see this before.

  • Thanks very much for that, i see the issue now

    My other robot.txt lines
        allow: /waypoints/$
        allow: /trigpoints/$
        allow: /routes/$
    where supposed to allow the search engin bot to index these top pages but it seems that Live Search takes a slightly different view of them than Google bot.

    cheers
