I had a website that had a Google PR of 4 on the home page and everything else was at least a 2. I used NetObjects Fusion to desigh that site. I recently learned how to use Dreamweaver CS3 and redesigned the looks of my site. The actual content is almost identical. I use Web Position 4 to optimize all the pages of this site, just as I had done on the previous site. The URL of the home page has not changed. It is http://www.example.com/index.html. My other pages were http://www.example.com/html/pagename.html. Now the html part is no longer there. They are simply http://www.example.com/pagename.html. Now all pages except my homepage have a zero PR. The homepage is now a PR3. I know they have been indexed by Google because if I search for some unique text, Google will find it. But it will not find it using my keywords and again, they have a zero PR. The new pages have been live for almost six weeks.

Any suggestions?

Previous URL : www.example.com/html/pagename.html
New URL : www.example.com/pagename.html

It means,URL has been changed of the inner pages.You have to do a 301 redirection from the previous urls to new urls.301 redirection will help you to get all the values of the previous urls.

Different URLS will be seen as entirely different sources.

You could create a directory called /html/ and put the new pages inside of that directory.

Or as new_seo said 301 redirect the old pages to the new ones and in time the new pages will inherit the PR of the old.
