I just used this technique to redirect all the old html pages to the new pages on my new wordpress website. You see, I did not want to lose any page traffic from the old website being converted to new and figured the best way would be to keep the old files on the server, since they were already indexed and may even have links going towards them from other websites. I used this code, which goes in the html code of your page, between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags of your html code.
|<meta HTTP-EQUIV=”REFRESH” content=”0; url=http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html”>|
Now whenever someone does a search and my old pages show up they will get reverted to the new pages on my website. Hope you web designers or people trying new things out will find that helpful.
