I run a website that has published its RSS feed at a given location for years. However, I'm now forced to move the feed to another URL. Let's say the original URL was
www.example.com/rss.xml and the new address is
I see from google webmaster tools that there's lots of activity picking up feeds from the existing URL.
I understand that HTTP-correct way of signalling a move to the feed fetcher is for the HTTP header on
www.example.com/rss.xml to send a response code
301 "Moved Permanently" and the target URL.
With existing constraints on the site, I can't do this right now. Is there a way I can tell google reader about the redirection? Say through google site tools or maybe some other way?
