How does 301 site redirect work?

  1. Hi,

    I'm moving my hosted blog to a new self hosted blog. If I purchased the 301 site redirect, will it redirect all my search query to same url, or it will just redirect to the main page?

    For example: redirect to

    or redirect to

    I have imported and setup the permalink on the new website to be the same as the old website.

    Another question is should I wait my new website to get indexed by Search Engine, i.e appeared indexed in Google Webmaster Tools before redirecting or just redirect the site A.S.A.P?

    Thanks in advance, and sorry for the trouble.

    The permolinks should redirect to the new site as well. As for search engines, redirect asap. When the search engines direct someone to your old site, they will automatically be forwarded to the new site.
