My site's URL is:
Description (including timeline of any changes made):
We just launched a redesigned site, with a new URL, at the begining of May, we will call the old site url1.com and the redesign url2.com. Our website is extremely complex, we host an array of recipes, which users can find on our websites through browsing or searching the site. Url1.com will not host all of url2.com's information. Here is an explanation of how the redirects are set up. If a user clicks on a link from the old url1.com they are sent to a 404 page. In the back end the logic looks to see if the content lives on url2.com. If so, there is a 301 redirect. If not, the user is sent to the error page. If the content exists, the user is never presented with the 404 page. To check to see how this looks I ran XENU and a header checker, on the old URLs. XENU only sees the 404, it doesn’t see the 301. However, URI valet (http://www.urivalet.com/) saw the 301 redirect. What will the engine's see, and will any value be passed via the 301 redirect?
(Not all the value apparently - but most.)

So they are always sent to 404 first?
No messing around.
