comment Index a 301 Redirect to help a user locate a page
As I commented on the other answer, a rewrite rule isn't really suitable in this case. The short URL is just a friendly URL that links to another server and application. I'm ideally looking for suggestions that remain with the two URLs in place.

Wouldn't this also just create the 301 Redirect rule, which is already in place for the short URL (as stated in the question)?

Thanks for your response Martin. That's an interesting way of turning on its head, to make the redirecting page the actual "master" page. However the page being redirected to is actually hosted on a different server, so a rewrite may be difficult to apply, something for me to look at though.
