Google Says Site Moves With Redirects In Place Only For 3-Months Is Too Short


We know that Google for several years has been telling us we need to have redirects in place for a year or so for Google to have the site moves stick. But how many months is too few, too little? John Mueller of Google said that three-months for a redirect being on place is not enough and you really need to keep it up for a year.

John said on Twitter “I would recommend keeping the old domain name for longer, and definitely keeping the redirects in place for at least a year. 3 months is too short for a site-move.”

Google has said it will try old redirects for years and years, so if the redirect goes away, that can signal something new to Google.

So fight, fight to keep those redirects up for at least a year.

Twitter Resumes Nofollow Attributes To Links

A few weeks or so ago, Twitter removed nofollow attributes from its links. Well, it seems like now those nofollow link attributes were added back. Glenn Gabe spotted this on this past Friday, right before the long July 4th weekend.

Here is a screenshot from Glenn from Friday but yes, the nofollow are still on links at the time I wrote this post:

So there goes that link building strategy – joking if that was not obvious…

As I wrote when Twitter removed nofollows from the links, I said I doubt Google would count them anyway.

In any event, figured I’d report on this so you are all updated on the current state of links on Twitter. 🙂
