IF I want my website content at a subfolder to be displayed as the 'home page/url' - what is the best way to handle the 'old' index.html that will to all intents and purposes be obsolete.
I have 301'd the index.html to subfolder url and all is fine with that...
BUT... what do I do with old index.html and content
1. remove index.html completely and submit for removal in WMT?
2. reduce index.html to be a shell of a page with brief information as to new homepage.. and add a canonical to sub-folder url... (BUT... do search engines spider a page that is 301'd?)
3. any other suggestions?
