Thanks for the information on 301 directs.
Sounds like it will be a great tool to use.
I haven't used it yet and I'm just wondering about this:
For example, say someone is on the fence about the specific /URL.html for a page and they decide later that they should have gone with the one that they didn't.
They can create the URL.html they want now and then 301 the original URL.html to the new URL.html.
To me that seems to take a lot of the 'scary guess work' out of figuring out what to make the URL.
If I have a page 1.html and then realize that I should have used a better file name 2.html -
Is it ok if I clone the 1.html page (because I like the content of it - but not the file name) - and then call it 2.html, then go to page manager and delete the 1.html page and use 301 redirect to 2.html.
Is that the way I avoid the duplicate content because 1.html is no longer there?
It's going to be very handy getting up to date with those GWT lost pages and redirect them, so I'm looking forward to using it for a few features, but I just wanted to make sure that I understood how to change a filename in the correct manner.
I'm so glad Diane that it has been a tremendous time saver for you and a way for your son also to get involved in helping you (and helping him!)
Thank you Ken for another helpful feature!
Wishing you all the best,
