I have a client whose site I am doing SEO for. The first page ( dot com) is a useless image page ('click to enter') I'd like to get rid of. BUT - he has a few links pointing to it. I'd rather not lose the few backlinks he has and more importantly, where he wants people to follow those links - like to apply for a job - I need them to work.
His 'true' home page is currently ( dot com/home . htm).
Can I just ask his webmaster to get rid of the first page and rename the home page to (.com) ? Or would we need to do some sort of redirect. We are going to have to do a redirect of the www URL as well.
It looks to be a Joomla site.
thanks - if you need any further clarification, just let me know
