I moved from ipboard to xenforo last month and setup redirects as well. Today I saw Google webmaster tools reported 514 404 not found errors and most of them relating to ipboard calendar links. How do I solve this issue? Shouldn't Xenforo be redirecting them to home page?
Hi Jake, thanks for the reply. If seo wise its not beneficial then it really doesn't matter. Any idea how long before Google drops the 404 links?
Also, I have one more query. I have the redirect script and htaccess file which came with it. How long are we suppose to keep that particular htaccess and redirect script after the switchover? Is there a time frame after which you can place the default xenforo htaccess file?
Might take a couple months to update the index and redirected URLs. Check Google periodically to see if the old links remain. Once they are updated then you can take down the redirects. Though it can be good to leave the redirects alone as they will still be useful for non-Google links such as old bookmarks.
