This topic has kind of been covered here, but I didn't see anything relating to my exact question, which is this:
My client launched a new company website, call it longdomainname.com. They have a product that they are selling at longdomainname.com/product/
They also registered a short domain name, product.tv
They are running tv commercials telling people to go to product.tv, which will redirect them (301) to longdomainname.com/product/
I've submitted both domain names to the big 3 search engines, and longdomainname.com is indexed, but none of the engines show any relevant results for product.tv.
I don't expect them to actually index product.tv since it's a redirect, but when someone types in product.tv into the search bar instead of the address bar, which often happens, I want the search engine to know to display results for longdomainname.com/product/ which would be perfectly relevant results.
Is this just a matter of time, will it never index properly, or is there other steps I need to take?
Thanks in advance.
