A HighRankings Forums thread has one member reporting the "diary" of a 302 redirect. Here is the timeline so far:

  • 12/19/07: 302 Re-direct implemented from www.oldsite.com to www.newsite.com
  • 12/20/07: New site name (not url - so BRAND NAME rather than www.brandname.com) shows in the SERPs old site URL for the brand name.
  • 12/24/07:A number of keywords are now showing up results in the SERPs for the new domain.
Are 302 redirects the best way to go for redirecting an old domain to a new domain? We debated that back almost a year ago. Jill's team feels it is the best way to go for domains with what they call "the aging delay" but the rest of the SEO world called the "sandbox." Sandbox chatter has gone way down in the past year, so does this apply at all anymore? In any event, the HighRankings Forums thread is discussing this timeline of events for the 302 redirect implementation.

I also want to commend HighRankings on their great new look! Here is a snap shot of their new forum logo:

Nice job! Forum discussion on the new design at HighRankings Forums.
