I just did a few pages of technical books at
I want to change the URL to something simpler like
The page is new and Google has it at PR=0 but it is indexed (actually #1 for
human factors books).
Can I just change it or do I have to do a redirect of some sort? I never did
that before so if I need it can you point me to one?
Thanks a lot,
Re: New file name?
You need a redirect in your .htaccess file - if that sounds horrendously
technical it is actually really simple and you'll get guidance here if you
need it. Sorry if I've just insulted your technical expertise :)
It's just a line like:
redirect 301 old.html http://www.example.com/new.html
If you feel that any of the above is incorrect,

please ignore it and accept my apologies.
