You are the man Chad!

This was a great share and I discovered that two of my main sites were really split up. Followed your instructions and everything worked perfectly.

Please keep on sharing, it is really appreciated.

chad you the man…………………..

301 redirect is the most efficient and spider/visitor friendly strategy around for web sites that are hosted on servers running Apache (check with your hosting service if you aren’t sure). It’s not that hard to implement and it should preserve your search engine rankings for that particular page. If you have to change file names or move pages around, it’s the safest option to get more juice to you ranking

The question I have is do I have to do it when the website is a WordPress Install? I thought that if your main website is using WordPress (Blog) then it automatically redirects.

Is that true or do I have to use the redirects?

Please answer I would really like to know.
Thanks
James
