Google: Keep Redirects Indefinitely But One Can Remove Them After Google Indexes

So in the case where that is not feasible, "removing the redirects after signals were passed (i.e. new page indexed and serves for old url) is fine," Gary added. Once the redirect is gone, Gary said "you will not get credited for any new links if the old page is nonexistent / doesn't redirect."
