Hi!
A while back I asked the person who managed our website to make it so our company logo (in upper left corner) redirects you to the home page when clicked on any page.  He/she did this by putting a 'hotspot' over the image and had it link to a file called 'index-2.'  As I am not sure why we had this second index, I wanted to change the a ref propoerties to the regular index file.  So I went through the pages and changed the tag to index.htm...but then I was thinking maybe I should change the value to the actaul domain name instead (i.e. www.mysite.com).  This prevents the /index.htm from showing in the address bar...but now after reading some other articles I am totally confused as to what is the best way to accomplish what I want to do (esp. considering SEO).  Please find the two 'codes' I am using below. Can anyone tell me if there is another way I should be doing this and/or defining the 'Home' page?  Thank you!
FIRST IT WAS (someone else set this up)...
 <map name="Map3">
                    <area shape="rect" coords="24,2,194,41" href="index-2.htm">
                  </map>
 
I CHANGED IT TO...
 <map name="Map3">
                    <area shape="rect" coords="24,2,194,41" href="index.htm">
                  </map>
 
AND ALSO...
<map name="Map3">
                    <area shape="rect" coords="24,2,194,41" href="http://www.mysite.com">
                  </map>

It doesn't matter if index.htm shows in the address bar or not.  Stick with choice 2 for simplicity.

So there is no need for a 'separate' home page, such as what was apparently created with the 'index-2.htm' file?  I am mainly concerned about Google being able to crawl the site.

Also, is there a way to change all of the tags at once instead of going through each page?
Thank you!

Doubt it.  I don't know what's on that page, but if it is a copy of index.htm, it was unnecessary.

Yes, you can use the Find and Replace function in Dreamweaver to do a site-wide change.
