Subject [users@httpd] Handling Redirects + SEO
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2009 06:18:25 GMT
Hi,

I would like some help in understanding how redirects work.

I have a main site www.mainsite.com and a microsite www.microsite.com.

All my rankings should be determined by mainsite.com.

However, we didn't think about it earlier and now microsite.com and
mainsite.com have divided traffic and hence rankings are lower.

We want to consolidate the two.

I know about 301 redirects and ideally I could have done -

    RewriteEngine ON
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mainsite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

So, www.microsite.com/about/index.php would go to
www.mainsite.com/about/index.php and my rankings would be accounted for as
its a permanent redirect.

However, this would mean I need to move all my pages "physically" from
microsite to mainsite.

Is there another alternative wherein I keep all my pages on microsite (still
have same directory structure) but call them using mainsite.com domain?

Am I making sense?

Let me know.

Thanks.
