Removal of 302 Redirects on Google Videos

Jul 11, 2005 - 8:49 am 0 by

Mikkel calls for the removal of the way Google currently handles the links to the author of the provided videos at Google Video. In a thread he named Google Video Doing 302 Redirects Mikkel describes how the link just below the "About this show" section is 302 redirect link, not 301 and not a direct link. What makes matters worse is that Chris_D points out, Google is not excluding that redirect within its robots.txt file.

Example of Mikkel's video.

We have all seen the results of 302 redirecting in the past year or two - and the problems dosen't seem to be over yet (especially not in Google). I am not sure I am so happy about this 302 from Google. With Googles high PR I am simply affraid that they will end up hijacking the sites I point to from the videos I upload and the question is, do I really want to add videos without any reference to my (or the artists) site?
