    No, no need to create a new folder with a .htaccess file in it. Place the .htaccess file in the root folder. It will just pick up any inbound links to the old folder and redirect the to something else. The point above was to include the old folder name in the redirect rules.

    Heads up:

    I made a few changes and the page went from bottom of third page to top of third page, over nigt. So thanks!

    I gave each page a descrpt and added some alt tags to img (woops).

    really enjoying learning! Taking a while. I just smashed the image in there np (on the home page). It's not 100% how I would like but I wanted a quick result.

    And I have played with ht acess previously.

    I guess I am a bit freaked about putting my blog directory. I prob have one there already.

    I am gettign a business entry for them. This really should not be that hard.

    For each page you had in your old site, you need to redirect it to the appropriate page of the new site, which may or may not have the same name - only you know that.

    So, supposing you had a page on your old site called test2.html and on your new site, that page is about.html, you would have
    Code:
    Redirect 301 /BnB/test2.html http://www.newdomain.com/about.html
    Obviously, you use whatever your actual page names are and substitute the real domain name for newdomain.com.

    If you already have a .htaccess in your root directory, then you just add this code to the end of it.

    sweet thanks - I get it now. I think sometimes my brain just fills up too much, and I can't fit anything else in.

    My next site will have a big seo part, this is all great fun. From your suggestions we are currently top of the third page in google, prior to my post we were bottom of third page. So thanks again.

    I have the htacess in my root I'll add asap

    It's for my neighbor, and it's not really ranking in Google at all. Launched about two months ago. Here is what I have tried

    Meta updates
    Getting links online (I have created a facebook page for him), and asked him to ask to get links, but I can't control this too much)
    Keywords in content
    Update once in a while.

    I know it's not the best looking site, but it's pretty much my first one so lay off! haha

    Thanks guys.
    Hi,

    Start with basics, after optimizing your website ( i mean on-page), generate xml sitemap and submit it to webmaster tools (Google, Bing, Yahoo). It helps bots to read all your web pages. Then start with promoting your website like social bookmarking, directory submission, article submission, press release, forum submission, blog writing and blog commenting, Guest posting etc... "SEO is a slow but fruitful process"
