Re: How are sites getting inbound links from tinyurl.com in their Moz link profile?

Why wouldn't it count as a link? It links to their page just like any other link.

By the way, judging links by DA is a terrible idea. So is Moz, but that's another story.

Re: Newbie Question about Page rank.

No. Don't use a plugin to set up redirects. You do it in the .htaccess code. Plugins introduce vulnerabilities, and if the plugin ever crashes or stops working, you lose all your redirects.

Re: Newbie Question about Page rank.

No. You want to use a 301 redirect, not 303.

Where did this come from? Why do people keep saying 303 redirects? Is someone just using a bot and spinning answers from other posts?

Re: Newbie Question about Page rank.

Also, just to clarify something. If you are changing URLs on a site, you should be using 301 redirects, not 303 redirects.

If you use 303 redirects, I would expect to see rankings completely tank.
