I want to 301 redirect an older site that has been penalized in Google, but does well in the other search engines, to a new site. The site is currently de-indexed on G by me. It's an exact copy of the new site so I removed it to avoid duplicate content. I'm not sure if I blocking the googlebot from indexing and following will block it before it redirects. Anyone have any experience with this? Yahoo/MSN bot --->1st site--->redirect...>New site! Googlebot--->No Index, No Follow, No Crawl---> 1st site!
