Making Google show redirected-to URL

Moved from a flaky host

I moved a site from a free web host to a directory on my own domain last week. I used a meta-refresh for each page on the old site. Now Google searches for the name of the site show the old URL with new content (title, etc) even though the new content only exists at the new URL. How can I make Google show the new URL instead?

(I want to get rid of the old URL because I want to see search referers and because the free web host is so flaky that it returns 404 errors about 25% of the time.)
