Hi Ken - Thanks - I had heard about some things for IIS 7, and I actually am using that. Unfortunately, the 404s that I've seen come in are a variety of different things. I've been working on compiling a list as they come in (not a lot but enough to make me ask the question), so I'll look them over and get a feel for what they are.

A custom 404 error page is another option Alternatively, redirects can be configured in IIS directly (if know that all requests for a particular folder should go to another folder, for example) Cheers Ken -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of dw at ainscough.net Sent: Thursday, 13 May 2010 5:22 AM To: todd at promisingsites.com; thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] Redirects on IIS for SEO Todd We ISAPI Rewrite running on our IIS box (http://www.isapirewrite.com/) Might do what you want Dave On 12 May 2010, at 17:09, "Todd Richards" <todd at promisingsites.com> wrote: > We moved a site from a Linux server to a Windows server running IIS. > I get > notices when 404 pages are hit, so I can see what is happening. > I've been > seeing errors for pages that were probably legitimate on the old > server. > However, they do not exist on the new server. > > > > What is the best way to handle this in IIS?
