      Description

      If you Google for 3.0 titanium site:docs.appcelerator.com you'll see that there's still a lot of old documentation on Google. This is because although we do redirect (TIDOC-2203) we don't sent a 301 status code. We can't do this because we have the redirect logic in JavaScript.

      So we should either:

      • Move the logic to .htaccess instead and send 301's
      • Use robots.txt to blacklist the old (wildcard) URLs
      • Use meta tags with canonical
