How To Handle Moving Pages
Posted 27 July 2005 - 01:23 PM
Have always received good info here, so I am back!
On one of our sites, we produce pages that we refer to as an 'eZine'. We attempt to keep it fresh with new information and ariticles every month (or 6 weeks). This eZine page is linked from all over the rest of the site. Because we understood that the 'main' page would change monthly, all the links in the site simply link to: oursite/ezine/index.html where 'index' is the main or current issue. We also operate a web board where in some cases, we want to link to that eZine.
When we update the information, we save that (index) page into the same subdirectory, but change the name to 'monthYEAR.html'. Then we simply add a link on the index page to that archived page. That way, we can keep updated information on the index page, and still keep the archives too.
Now here's the problem. The 'index' page gets listed and indexed in search engines rather promptly (Like that's a problem! ). Yes, that's great! But it's only there for about a month. Should a person click the link from the search, they get to a page that (most likely) is a completely different topic.
So, my question is this. How do we maintain this eZine (as an 'index.html') so that we don't have to change links on all the other pages in the site, but still keep the SE's happy?
Your comments are appreciated!
