    Redirection


    Hi all,
    Does Google cause a problem when I make a redirection to a specific file on my server? For example:
    My server opens it default.asp and www.mydomain.com reads this file. What happens if I write a redirection to main.html? Does Google see this as a redirection and causes a problem or read the content???

    Thanks

    Ceyhun

    I don't recall seeing this topic in the F.A.Q. but if it isn't in there, it should be based on how frequent it comes up (veterans must get sick of seeing the question all the time too).

    As far as the redirection, manipulate your .htaccess file to do a 301 redirect and all will be ok with the search engines. Click my profile and view my threads/posts and you should find more information.

    No Problem... Google will see it - it may take time for all datacenters to credit everything to the new destination.
