If you're staying on the same domain name and just changing URLs (so www.example.com/widgets/ is now moved to www.example.com/widgets2/), why would you even bother with a 301? Why not just move the page, have Googlebot receive a 404 on the old URL, and then re-index the new one? I don't see why this would even be a problem (if you're staying on the same domain) even if you do this in a large scale (thousands of pages). Thoughts?
