Continue with applying the 301 redirects, and update your sitemap files to reflect the new URLs and resubmit them to the webmaster tools of the company's search engine you're trying to have the pages indexed in (which probably would be Google and/or Bing). Then increase the rate at which the search engines crawl your pages and hopefully you'll gain more ...

I assume the old pages will remain indexed for a while unless there was a long time lapse between old site going down and new site going up. Do the 301's and see if you start picking up the traffic from the old indexed pages. I has a similar situation and gains most of the traffic back but this all happened in a very short amount of time. I would keep the ...

If you only have the supplied redirect and can't control anything else on the university's server then this is not possible. (They would need to setup mod_proxy or, as a "cheap" workaround a single page document with an IFRAME containing your site.) If you do go ahead with this then when you eventually move the site to the university's server, setup a ...

I figured out how to solve the second part of the question where the ID= was found at the end like the following: example.com/index.php/archived-content?id=206 by adding a line to the .htaccess like: RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^id=206 RewriteRule (.*) /some-file-name.php? [R=301,L]

This assumes that p, id or catid always appears at the start of the query string, and that the value of this parameter is the "file" basename in the new URL, as per your code examples. RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^(p|id|catid)=(\d+) RewriteRule ^$ /%2.php? [R=301,L] The ^$ pattern only processes requests for the document root (ie. ...

Its a slightly longer process that the 3 options you've suggested, although still doable. Blogspot won't allow 301 redirects, so you can't simply redirect the whole site + link juice. You will need to tell Google that the duplicate content (i.e. your new site - assuming you have copied all content over already) is the most relevant. You do this using the ...

Just to make sure the google bots aren't gonna play a picky move, if you have a landing page, you might want to add a few more words to the page other than just the list of languages to choose from. Perhaps give a simple welcome message to the (insert website name here) in all the languages. At least then Google won't label the page as "thin content". ...

Splash screens are acceptable according to Google. They do offer some best practices however, when using multi-language/multi-regional sites. In this article, Google recommends the use of the hreflang tag within <link rel="alternate" ... /> tag in the head. The specific excerpt from the article is below: For language/country selectors or ...

The idea is usually to track such clicks and remove the SEO benefit. Most such links will not be counted by Google and will not have a direct SEO benefit for your site. Even if Google does process the JS redirect script and discovers your linked page via such a redirect, it wouldn't give it the benefit of being counted as a regular plain-text editorial link ...

You can redirect your site from www to non-www version by 2 diff. ways : First Method is RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.example\.com [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://example.com/$1 [L,R=301] You can use above code in you Htaccess. But it will be something like hardcoded code as you have to specify domain name. It will work fine. Second Method is : ...

You are looking for something pretty similar to me. This code worked (it redirects the user to a new link) but it needs some polish Options +FollowSymlinks -MultiViews <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.*)\.example\.com RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /%1-index.php [L,NC] </IfModule> So this should redirect ...
