    301 a URL with parameter

    Hi guys,

    Just remade a site and put 301's on the old URLs to the new ones...

    And a few of the old ones have been indexed with a sessionID parameter, like "mysite.com/apage.php?SessionID=3D2e5678c4ee"

    Now, is it enough for me to "just" redirect the url without the parameter from google point of view?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    The SessionID probably points to a session that is long gone but it makes no bearing as to your redirect or from the google point of view. The SessionID links to a (Data) session that is stored in a location on your webserver. Your pages may have been designed to make use of Session Data. Give this a try: type
    Code:
    www.ibm.com?SessionID=3D2e5678c4ee
    and you will see that you will be routed to the site, but your SessionID is meaningless to the IBM webserver.
