If I were you, after going live with your new site, I would change links from client sites to your new site. If you just apply a 301 redirect from your old site and that's all, you lose a little bit SEO value. For anchor text of these links, the best option would be to choose your brand name. No matters if all anchor texts are the same if it refers to your ...

I am assuming that you are, in effect, abandoning the old domain whether the old domain disappears or not, I am assuming that you prefer the new domain over the old domain. I am working with this assumption. I am always in favor of taking a bit of pain to create a clean site/scenario. Otherwise you end up with compromises that complicate things for the ...

Following on from comments... since you are wanting to completely remove these pages from Google's index then simply redirecting (301) them (as requested in your original question) is not necessarily the correct thing to do. Redirection is saying that the page has moved. Yes, Google is likely to drop the original page from the index... eventually, but that ...

How about: RewriteRule (html|php)$ http://www.example.com [R=301,L] This matches all requests which end either with html or php strings.

You can try these lines into a .htaccess file: RewriteRule ^(html|php) http://www.example.com [R=301,L]

Normally, I would say no. I am assuming that the redirect is interrupting access to the site somehow that you may not be aware of. I do not have an example of the redirect that you are using so there is a huge information vacuum in your question in that regard. I reread everything here and I noticed that there was no redirect to answer your question. So I ...

It depends on what sort of "no root page" you've got. My personal website originally returned "404" for / (and common variations such as /index.html or /index.php). Google had no trouble finding things using inbound links to actual pages, but the Cuil crawler couldn't handle it: I'd see a request for whichever inbound link it was following, a request for ...

From an SEO point of view, no, it's not a problem for your page to have no root. Search engine's index URLs, it doesn't matter if they're in subfolders or not. However, from a user-experience point of view you really shouldn't assume that anybody who lands on the root of your site wants to see the English version. Let's say a Japanese user tells one of ...

If the root (/) 301 redirect to /en/, Google will most probably consider your homepage is http://www.example.com/en/ and there is no problem not to have a root (/) page. Regarding Google guidelines for multilingual sites, you can use this method to separate languages on your site.

The robots.txt is OK, there is no need for the Allow part, but that is still OK. Although the domain has been registered some time ago, the content doesn't seem to be very old, or the site has almost no activity, so I'll assume that is being built or rebuilt recently. The lack of content and the time when you sent the sitemap to the crawlers affect the ...

By what I can tell, by the comments and the link to the site, the robots.txt is correct for the site to index the /home/ folder (I could be wrong). Can the permanent redirect be the reason why no pages inside /home are indexed? The 301, permanent redirect, tells the Search Engine crawlers where to go, which will be to the /home/ folder to index the ...

With your configuration the behavior your get is normal. It is because you have a folder named folder, apache prepends the trailing slash / and hides index.html (or index.php ) if that is not specified. The only way to get rid of the slash at the end would be to force all request to go through 1 file (e.g. index.php) and then make your application routing ...
