When will this take effect, as I look on google and can see my old cached pages (that are no longer there) Do i have to wait till the end of the month for the 'google dance' or when google comes along and crawls my site?
Look out for your site appearing for a few days and then going until the next update.
I just noticed you said old pages that aren't there anymore. Be careful changing filenames of pages with good position. I always try to change the content but keep the filenames. Apologies if this isn't what you meant.
Your old files will take some time to fall out of the index and your new ones will take time to appear. Assuming the optimisation is the same this should happen ok. I think that asp pages are indexed the same as straight html but I am no expert on this.
in answer to your question I think any new content can take a while to filter through permenantly. Look at some threads on the different type of listing updates though.
Use a meta refresh to point users onto you from your old listings and hopefully you won't lose too much traffic.
By the way I have a hunch that we are both still finding our way around google so I hope this is not a case of the blind leading the blind ;)
