I have a page: www.mysite.com/cool-page-here.html
I also have a domain that im not using and i think will be much easier for people to just type in:
coolpage.com
I redirected the domain to that page using godaddy's "forward domain" tools and use the domain to promote the page.
When I link to the domain from another page, will the backlink count for www.mysite.com/cool-page-here.html and add to the existing backlinks?
Also, lets say i decide to make a website under that domain. Will those backlinks transfer to the new site or will they stay with the long url?

Hope you guys understand what im asking smile.gif

Only if it is a permanent (301 response) redirect.

And typically a godaddy redirect is 302 (despite what they will tell you).

Load a url address into any of the header status checker tools out there. There are several dozen of them, some of which perform better than others. WebBug is one you can install if you're on a PC and going to need to check such things often. Make sure the select HTTP Ver 1.1 with it, because it defaults to 1.0 and that was buggy. Or if you just need to check occasionally use one or more of the online header checker tools. I even have one that's free to use over on my personal site here.

Thanks smile.gif

But here is what I got sad.gif(


Full Headers Below:

HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
Content-Length: 0


Is there a way to do 301 on godaddy?
EDIT:
wow,
i checked my domain.com and its 302 as well. sad.gif

So, all those backlinks that used domain.com don't even count toward the www.domain.com

I know about .htaccess and the alternative methods, but I have a very limiting web host and forwarding through the registrar is the only option.
CAN I somehow do a 301 on godaddy?
EDIT2:
OK, Never mind... My domain.com now has a 301 biggrin.gif
