1) YES

2) so that you do not lose the work you have put into your submitting the first page, try this.

Re-do the page and leave it BLANK except for 2 things, a FULL path HTML Anchor link, and a meta refresh link

Do This
<HTML>
<head>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="1; url=http://www.100megsfree4.com/mugwort/hi.htm">
</head>
<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF"><P> <P>
<center><a href="http://www.100megsfree4.com/mugwort/hi.htm">Health Issues</a> </center>

Even though the spiders will NOT like the meta refresh page, you will KEEP most of your business.

</body>
</html>
