To Move ... or Not To move (1 post)

    Hey Everyone -

    I'm trying to decide if I should move my blog to the root directory or not.

    I've been reading a lot about SEO optimization, etc. and they all tend to suggest that it's best to put your blog in the root directory.

    If I were starting over, that's exactly what I'd do. But for now, I've already got an established blog installed at:
    http://www.fredmckinnon.com/myblog/

    Moving it to the root folder would/could break a lot of incoming links, heard my ranking, etc .. but I wonder if I should cut my losses and go ahead and make the move now, and hope it pays off later.

    Any advice or anyone made this leap before? If I should go ahead and made the move, any suggestions on how to do it cleanly and try to minimize broken incoming links to the old "myblog/" location?

    Thanks in advance,
    Fred McKinnon
