Post-move considerations

· Best Practices, Weblog Concepts

Whew! It appears that the move over last night was successful, except in the sense that many people will start missing new posts as they continue to look at or poll the old address.
Suddenly I need to learn about the RSS feed redirection stuff Dave was posting about last week.
Also, I need to rethink the Google search, which is tuned for blogs.salon.com/0001111/. Since it will take a while for Google to reindex at my new address, I think I need to continue to offer the old search but soon introduce an alternate search box that looks at radiofreeblogistan.com. At some point I’ll have to make that latter search box the default and start offering the “old” search as the alternate. No telling how long this transition will take.
I’ve got to keep a running list of things like this that need to be considered during and after a move of address.
