Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I have recently changed the name of my page from widgets.asp to Widgets_Widgets.asp on one of my main content pages. Everything else remains exactly the same. Now, it appears google has yet to index that page, which is what I am waiting for, however, my question is will the bot assign the old PR to that page and give it its old power, or do I need to wait for months for that to happen? Also, should I change the name back to what it was?
1. There are links into the page
2. The PR is updated (I guess you are using the Google toolbar - this is only updated once in a while, I think the last time was September 2005).
1) Anyone who bookmarked tha old page will not get a dead link
2) Google will update its index rather than dropping your old page and starting afresh.
