  • Link Redirections Going Crazy

    Whenever I do a Google search for something I think MSDN ought to have, I get search hits at msdn.microsoft.com, docs.microsoft.com or other sites.

    Often, when I follow those links I get redirected to some Microsoft top level page. It was a couple of bakers in pink aprons for a while, now it's something else, but always at a microsoft.com URL.

    Sometimes, I can click "back" on the browser to get to the right URL, sometimes not.

    Is anyone else seeing similar redirections to pages other than where Google says it should go?

    No. Could you supply an example of a search.

      Hi Mike!

      Yep, in this picture the search on the left goes to the site on the right. I can just read the text. If you cannot, let me know and I'll post a larger version.

            Yep, quite often, updating your own web, I'm sure you changed link address from time to time,
            like maybe this one... http://www.garybeene.com/retire/ret-activities.htm lol Sorry, couldn't resist...
            Same goes for Bill's web site, except for the automatic reroute of the 404 to the main page.
            With a magic wand, I could create a more powerfull and alert Google.

            For the back button, it is like a malicious leprechaun had fun with java Disable the back button on a web page

              Mike,
              Well, it just happens a lot, and mostly within the last year. I'd think MS and Google would have caught up with one another by now.

              Pierre,
              WHAT - that page is missing? Who took it? I didn't. The same mischievous elf working on the MS site must be working on mine too!
