I have several pages that I would like to redirect within the same domain; but I am not able to use any server side scripting.
Is using a meta refresh with a 0 second delay safe with the major search engines? I am a little nervous - an acquaintance told me she did a meta refresh recently and Yahoo seemed to treat it like a 302 redirect (i.e. the old page url showing with the new page content).
yes a meta refresh with 0 seconds is safe and for your situation probably the best option other than moving to a better hosting company (hint hint :)). i have personally used this many times and not had any issues.
