Redirecting a link outside of Marketo to a Marketo page.

Redirecting a link outside of Marketo to a Marketo page.

We have an PDF that exists outside of Marketo (on a now defunct server) - we want to redirect it to a Marketo link.

Are there any issues?

Thank you

Is there still a server listening on the original URL?  There's no problem at all redirecting the link to Marketo, but something needs to be able to receive the original hit.

can't webmaster tools help on that pt?

But if the Server is gone already, then it might be too late. Depends how the server was decommissioned. Strongly suggest leaving PDFs on your main site though.

You'd just need something listening on mrktoa.blueshield.ca that can redirect PDFs (Marketo itself has a bad time redirecting PDFs but that's a conveniently different issue).  That something could be catchall web page or...?

Thanks everyone... that's what I thought.
