I have an old subdomain on tripod which I'd like to redirect (301) to my new domain. They don't seem to offer redirection for subdomain even with a subscription.

Has anyone had any luck permanently (301) redirecting a subdomain on tripod to a new domain?

Should I do a "link rel canonical" to point to the new site together with a meta refresh redirect?

Google treats a meta refresh set a 0 seconds just like a 301.

mod_asis can be used for 301 redirects on tripod httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_asis.html – user15674 May 25 '12 at 5:11
By the way , canonical won't work across domains ie. won't work with tripod. – user15676 May 25 '12 at 6:38
Actually, google supports cross canonical: googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/12/… – user389823 Jun 21 '12 at 12:37
