I've just finished redesigning the website and had some new URLs that didn't match up to old ones.
I did a 301 redirect to those pages. Now the old and the new page are ranking first and second in google (2 results ranking instead of 1 previously).
My theory is that since the redirected URL is ranking, it hasn't been crawled yet, so the new page is not getting any juice from the redirect.
What I want What will happen if I redirect my old page to another URL. Will the ranking for the new URL remain?
