How to move a page and preserve its rank in Google SERPs?
Geocities closing, I don't want to lose my high-ranking page

How should I modify my geocities page in such a way that it would pass on its pagerank to a page in a new location? (can I use HTML REDIRECT tag, etc.)

No, to the best of my knowledge geocities doesn't offer a 301ing redirect facility - and even if they did, it would vanish when the site disappears. You are going to have to do the hard yards manually: - rehost the content - change the geocities content - each page - to point to the new page - start contacting those backlinks!
Not an easy task at all.

Thanks! Do you think I should use the REDIRECT tag?
