I have a small problem(relative). I revamped our company website and
applied some information architecture in accordance with seo standards.
What I did was I changed the URL structures for example:
www.coolgadgets.co.za/events.htm is now
www.coolgadgets.co.za/event_management_south_africa.htm and then
www.cool....../event_management/mic.._golf_day_nov_2005.htm This allows
me to better structure all the devisions of our company into seperate
folder etc etc. The problem is that some of our pages have been getting
us a lot of hits from SE's and we have a lot of websites that links to
pages other than our home page. I did a Google search on 301 redirects
and follow the instructions. My .htaccess file have the following
Redirect permanent optimization.htm
Redirect permanent events.htm
I tested this and the redirect did not work. Accoriding to SEO
standards, the meta refresh tag is frowned upon by bots, making this
not an option. I dont want to make way with my already good rankings on
SE's as this will cost a lot of valuable traffic.
