Temporarily redirect a blog page to a landing page - the back in 6 monthsSOLVE
Aug 8, 2018 4:46 PM
We have a PDF that contains a link to a page in our blog to view the footnote references. We want to initially make the PDF available for download on a campaign landing page for an exclusive period without making the blog page live. After this exclusivity period, we want to make the blog page live, but not until then.
The trouble is, if the blog page is not live when the PDF is downloaded from the campaign landing page, the user will receive an error.
Without creating 2 versions of the PDF (one with a references URL for the campaign and another for the blog) what would be the most efficient way to handle this?
The obvious answer is to use a 302 redirect but I've read that crawlers will eventually treat this like a 301 if it's in place for a long time, though I don't know what "a long time" is.
My other thought is to publish the blog page set it somehow to not display in the blog and not indexed. Is that possible?
