    Hi, I hope someone can help me regarding search engine links.

    Basically I have up-dated one of my websites and tried re-submitting the URL to altavista.

    Although when I do a search it still comes up with the old links which aren't there now!

    Is there anything I can do about this?

    Please HELP!!

    Thanks

    Hello!

    It's very possible that the search engines just hasn't re-spidered your site yet. How long ago did you re-submit it?

    Search engines tend to update themselves every few weeks, but if you're unsure about it, you could create a custom 404 error page telling people that your site has been re-designed and pointing them to the new homepage.

    Have a look here for info on custom 404 error pages: http://www.webcom.com/webcom/help/fa...om_error.shtml

    Hope that helps a little bit.
