Setting up your own page make it easier for your visitors to understand that they either typed the wrong address
or page doesn’t exist any more.

What is/how do I find my .htaccess?

Thank you.

Is this bad?
If you can reach your documents by index.php?q=id or index.php?page=id but not aliases _anymore_ it could be that they are
set case sensitive in .htaccess and that you will need to type the aliases correct...

I’d say aliases are more friendly for SEO because google can find results in the url. The links I posted above can guide you how
to set things right. If that is tricky you should get someone else doing it for you.]]>

Are all your links and url’s pointing/redirecting visitors to: www.foo.com/index.php or index.html?
Were you you able to navigate the page before you changed all the page titles?

All my links are pointing to index.php. Is this bad?

Yes, all my pages were navigable before I changed all page titles and still are .

I was instructed that I should do a 301 redirect for all my old links. Do you guys agree?

Can’t I just clear all the aliases, thereby creating unique and seo-friendly urls, then create a new sitemap and submit it to Google and delete my old sitemap?

I’m sorry for all the questions, it’s just that I’m not exactly a "web developer." I’ve only recently learned basic HTML/CSS and SEO. The guy who actually set up my site for me isn’t around anymore, so I’m trying to figure things out on my own for the time being.

Thank you all for your patience.
