comment 302 or 301 redirect in case where redirect lasts 1-2 months
I understand the distinction between 301 and 302, but what you're suggesting wouldn't work because the new author site won't have the opportunity to propagate to the search engines in time. Another idea I have is to have an intermediate (basically a temporary home page) on the old book site that asks the user if they are looking for information about the author or are you looking for information specific to her book and have links from there.
