I have just received a site that is mostly dynamic with instructions from its owner to make it SE friendly. I had originally performed minor SEO work on the site and it is beginning to receive a bit of traffic.
In the process of re-working the site and removing much of the dynamics, it was necessary to alter the structure such that some of the original pages no longer exist under the original name.
So, the question is, is it okay to build blank pages using the old names that link from the SEs with a "0" refresh to the new page name...thereby saving the traffic, which wil certainly receive a 404 file without the new blanks, and bridge the gap until the new page names are indexed? After the new pages show up in the returns, I plan to delete the temp pages.
Thanks for any advice and/or opinions.
