Title

Make www.ucdenver.edu a permanent 301 redirect instead of a 302

Detailed Description

Is there any way to make www.ucdenver.edu a permanent 301 redirect instead of a 302? I’ve been conducting a lot of research lately and we’re really getting dinged on the temporary redirect. Google thinks www.ucdenver.edu and http://www.ucdenver.edu/Pages/UCDWelcomePage.aspx are two different sites and therefore we aren’t getting SEO credit when people link to the domain instead of the page.

Demers, ScottNo presence information (10/24/2011 12:42 PM): UnlessI have the wrong server, Fiddler still shows this as a 302. See attachment.
Johnsen, BernieNo presence information (10/14/2011 4:40 PM): Assigning to Jeremy for testing.
Johnsen, BernieNo presence information (10/14/2011 4:38 PM): Correction to the entry below.  You must add two lines to your hosts file:
132.194.7.35 ucdenver.edu
132.194.7.35 www.ucdenver.edu
 
Delete those, save file and flushDNS when done.
Johnsen, BernieNo presence information (10/14/2011 4:36 PM): 301 has been configured on the dev farm at http://spdev.ucdenver.edu .  Please see fiddler to verify 301 vs 302 on home page redirection. 

Have also configure ate-sp-fe1 to demonstrate redirection of http://ucdenver.edu to http://www.ucdenver.edu.  To test this you must configure your host file on your workstation.  To do this, open C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts with notepad and add the following entry to the bottom of that file :
132.194.7.35 ucdenver.edu
Save and close the hosts file.
Close all browser windows
Open a command prompt (cmd.exe) and type: ipconfig /flushdns
Those three actions will force your local workstation to route to atel-sp-fe1 to test ucdenver.edu to www.ucdenver.edu redirection.  When done remove the last line from the host file and re-save. Repeat flushdns command.
 
I don't believe this will have any adverse affects on the production functionality, but, I'd highly recommend testing with the UWS scripts on spdev.ucdenver.edu to be sure. 
 
 
Demers, ScottNo presence information (9/7/2011 12:01 PM): IIS setting could be the solution.
Fulbright, JeremyNo presence information (8/30/2011 3:30 PM): dependent on http modules. Requires extensive load testing.
