I can redirect to a site. The trick is to do individual page redirects onto the permanently corresponding site.
Redirct in one hop.
When Matt talks about Google bot getting dizzy following the 'multi- hops along a redirect chain' I had a scene running through my head of the times I had hit onto a page somewhere and seen .. this page is not found, or had to wait forever for the page to trigger the loading session. I think the time delay is caused by these multi hops talked about.
Must check this out further.
By the way Matt explains things really well. Play the video and judge for yourself.
