  Unless I'm missing something, http://yadda.centos.org doesn't redirect, it 
displays a copy of the (www.)centos.org content.

  I'm not that knowledgeable about SEO stuff, but wouldn't a redirect be 

  Assuming an Apache setup, adding something like a catch-all virtual host 
after any other centos.org host definitions.  I prefer URL's without the www 
unless there is a good reason...

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerAlias *.centos.org
  Redirect permanent / http://centos.org

  That should get the browser client to notice and change where it is going.
