Redirecting old Wordpress tags?
onlinesource

I use to have a Wordpress blog off of my root directory and recently decided to move all of my blog content to my shopping cart, which I host on my root. I basically exported my old Wordpress posts and imported them as pages within my cart.

So what was once on my blog as mysite.com/blog/this-great-article is now mysite.com/this-great-article.html (how my cart formats pages).

I have a redirect 301 from the old pages to the new pages. That was easy.

I am also seeing a bunch of missing Wordpress tags.

For instance...

mysite.com/blog/tag/tag-here

Where should I direct these? To the page that most likely used the tag? For instance of "tag-here" was used on a tag for the page "my-great-article", that is where I should send people? Or to my homepage? I would ignore these but Google keeps flagging them as PAGE NOT FOUND error.

Does anybody have a better alternative?

Should I go into robots.txt and...

DISALLOW: /blog/tag but keep /blog because I want to get credit for all my old content?
