    Question Need advice concerning site changes

    I have a blog at 4-video-game-rentals.com/blog.html (link is in my sig) that's starting to gain some decent popularity. Being only two months old, I'd say the site is doing good.

    The following has been edited for brevity

    I'm thinking about moving my blog (at /blog.html) to the index page. I figure this will help me in my rankings. However, I don't want to lose potential sales by moving my reviews from the homepage. Any advice?

    Moving things around will probably hurt you short term. Long term.. who can say. I doubt it will make much of a difference.

    As for using mod_rewrite, I wouldn't do what you are thinking. Google and other SE's will only spider so deep based on your site's importance. The actual directory location has nothing to do with how "deep" they go. Its more basd on links. If there is a link on your homepage to another page, that page is only one link deep, regardless of the directory its stored in.

    If what you say is true how would I go about getting a URL like 4-video-game-rentals.com/2005/05/gamefly-tips indexed quicker?

    Update: I've decided to leave the blog URLs as-is. But I'm still considering moving the blog to the index page. Any thoughts guys?
