SEO Impacts of redirects and external pages for ContentDMNEW

Hi Ryan,

Try typing one of your sublevel page urls in to the tool found at www.browseo.net  and then look at the "report card"   by clicking on the i information icon.   It explains about redirects and chains of redirects using 301s.   The tool sees your one 301 redirect but at least you are  not a chain of redirects so you should be fine. --SS

But of course a 200 would be better! --SS
