I'm thinking of substantially reorganizing my wiki within the next few
weeks. I'd like to be somewhat graceful, leaving my (:redirect:)'s on
all my current pages. Using wget, I see that redirect pages send HTTP
302 (moved temporarily). Is there any provision to send HTTP 301 -- a
(:moved:) directive, perhaps?
I guess the broader question is whether or not this is necessary. I'd
like to give Google, et al a chance to properly reindex my site
without causing too much trouble. Does this sound like a good
approach? Is 302 sufficient? I don't know that much about HTTP and
search engines. I do know that I will want to get rid of my old
pages after a few months, if only because I like a tidy server.
