Ok, so, I have two (2) blogs going right now. My first one is a BlogEngine.Net site which I called my TechNotes. It is located at http://www.larrybrouwer.com:81. My current blog is a WordPress site located at http://www.larrybrouwer.com. This is a problem because the search engines are spidering both, and there are now duplicate entries. Worse yet, the old site is getting priority, so visitors are being directed to my old TechNotes blog instead of my most current one.
What I need to do, is to implement a re-direct solution to retire the old blog gracefully and allow the search engines to be aware of the change.
After some Googling on “301 Redirects IIS7”, and reading a few articles on the subject, I decided to give it a try. I logged into my web server and opened up the IIS Manager Console. I then opened up my web site and first went into HTTP Redirect. This has some promise, but it only allows for wholesale redirects of the entire website to another location. What I need, at least initially, is the ability to redirect individual posts (or pages) of my old blog to my new one.
