Redirect old Google Results and incoming links
I have a domain with a fair amount of results in Google. I registered this domain after the previous owner dropped it.
I parked the domain for a while but have now developed it. Fortunately, the site is still indexed in Google and there are also a fair amount of incoming links
to the old site, a forum.
I've got a rule in my htaccess file to redirect all 404 to the site root (index.php). Like this:
ErrorDocument 404 /index.php
My question is, what is the best way to keep the Google results and incoming links? With a 404 or with some other redirect rules?
Any help would be appreciated.
