Hi,

One of our pages has been scrapped. It was a .htm page, and is now a .html. When you search for the page in Google, it still pulls the link with the .htm. Is there a way to get it to pull the new index?

Thank you!

Create a Google Sitemap and upload it with the correct URL.  http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/  Then recreate the old page with a <meta redirect tag> to go to the new one.  Similar to this: http://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_redirect
