For the URLs under 'latest/' the server returns a "301 Moved
Permanently" response, which is used to indicate that the original URL
is no longer in use and that references to it should be updated to the
target URL . Hence, search engines will only index the targets of the
redirects and ignore the original URLs . Using a "302 Found" redirect
instead might produce better results, at least for Google .
