Move HTML Pages

When you want to move your html pages to other directory, or to rename it, it will make you traumatic. Reorganizing and renaming pages may make your site easier to maintain and navigate but every moved page creates a bad URL. These broken URLs can cause big problems for the search engines and viewers if not handled correctly. This article shows you a search engine friendly way to redirect URLs for the search engine spiders and your visitors.

We will show you how to create a 301 (permanent) redirect using your .htaccess file. This article assumes that your server software is Apache and the Apache module mod_alias is installed.

The first step is to create an .htaccess file, this should be at the root level of your server. Notice the '.' (period) at the beginning of the file name, this is a UNIX naming convention, the period makes the file invisible for normal viewing. You may need to adjust your FTP client software to make this normally invisible file visible.

After you find or create your .htaccess file you need to edit it with a text editor. Depending on your URL redirection needs, you can redirect on a directory (folder) by directory basis or on a page by page basis. Here are the details for both cases. See our next post about this.
