Buillding New Site, Changing Old Search Eng. Listing
From Doug Marin at Anders Bendt A/S on 2 May '99
This site was created almost 2 1/2 years ago using FrontPage. Unfortunately, I created it using Frames.

Even so, it is fairly well listed by a LOT of search engines. In fact, plenty of it's internal pages are listed, which is a problem because all that pops up when Users select the search engine link is that ONE page...Not the Framed site.

That is one reason why I am going to do a complete redesign without frames. The site is badly in need of an upgrade anyway.

The BIG QUESTIONS are:

1.Does this mean I have to start all over again with submissions ?
2.What will the Search Engines do if I put "Referer Tags" on all my old pages pointing them at the new Home Page ? I understand this may result in getting ditched by the search engine.

I am hoping to preserve my list positions (especially where they are good). Any ideas or thoughts ?

Thanks to all !

Doug
