Well it’s been a long time since I didn’t post any web-related items. Anyway, Steven Hargrove has put up a good guide on the smarter way to redirect pages. Many webmasters tend to move files or even change filenames and risk the search engine pointing the old location or names and get a 404.
Steven’s guide has the perfect solution for these and offers them in a variety of ways, from IIS, mod_rewrite, .htaccess, asp and others.
To be specific, the 301 redirect tells the browser, or in other cases, it tells the search engines “Hey this page has been moved, here is the correct URL!”. Think of it as you getting mail that is not addressed to your name, possibly addressed to somebody who has lived there prior to yourself, what do you do? You tell the post man (or woman) “Hey they dont live here anymore, here is the correct address”. It is the same concept guys, pretty simple if you asked me!
A good guide. Go here to read.
