Hello everyone, This is my first input although I'm not exactly a newbie - I have been a 'webmstress' for over a year now. As I have only ever used a graphical program - DW3+4, I really struggle sometimes as I'm not particularly tech savvy.
Anyhow I'd really appreciate it if anyone could give me some guidelines for my problem. My company will be merging with a competitor within the next few months and I need to know how to go about this with regard to designing a new site.
Currently, our PR isn't bad on Google - so I'd hate to lose the position we've got to. If I just put up redirect pages on both sites to the new one (which will have a completely new name), will that be acceptable or is that defined as 'cloaking'? In the past I've just put a link to a new site on the redundant page - but I'm not sure what constitutes cloaking! I FTP the files to our ISP which holds our domain, would I need to put up a Page 301 - if so how do I go about it?
Apologies for being so naive - I'm best working graphically, I find the techie stuff a bit of a challenge - but I'm determined to win thru :o)
