I have a web site that was done with Microsoft's My Web Pages Starter Kit.

There is no need for this site to be dynamic and I want to make it static so that I can fix things like the IE6 png transparency bug, replace table-based layout with xhtml/css, etc.

How should I approach this so that it has no effect on Search Engine rankings. Would I have to just put a permanent redirect at the top of every .aspx file?

Why not just replace the existing dyanmic code with static html in the aspx and keep the file names the way they are.

I thought of that... but I wasn't sure if that was an option since these pages are generated dynamically. They are just virtual filenames... They don't actually exist.

But it makes sense... A request is a request... If the files are in place then that is what will be served.

I just really CANNOT afford any bumps in the Google ranks... so I wanted to ask to make sure. Thanks.
