Have just finished working on a dev site and the live site has been launched (on a different server/url) - unfortunately, Google bots were very efficient and have inadvertently indexed the dev site (which became 'open/live' during the last few days of development for testing purposes)
I have now archived the site, but if visitors reach it, all they receive is a 'suspended' message - so I was wondering how best to 'redirect' users to the new/correct url and server using multisite?
e.g. would it be best to use a plugin like Redirection and direct all traffic away? Or to leave it as archived so 'suspended'? And would it be advisable to use Google's Remove URL tool?
Thanks in advance
