I have a website
www.mywhateversite.com

I used to have a test version of the blog
www.mywhateversite.com/blog2

I wasn't careful and google picked it up. I made www.mywhateversite.com/blog (without 2)

And now I want to create a rule in the IIS7 that would redirect to the same exact url address, but without the 2.

So, www.mywhateversite.com/blog2/my-blog-article
would redirect to www.mywhateversite.com/blog/my-blog-article

Or maybe I can somehow get it done through godaddy?


Please help!!!

This is the answer for what I was looking for:

<rewrite>
            <rules>              

              <rule name="RedirectToBlog" stopProcessing="true">
                <match url="^blog2/?$|^blog2/(.*)$" />
                <conditions />
                <serverVariables />
                <action type="Redirect" url="blog/{R:1}" />
              </rule>
             
            </rules>
        </rewrite>

this is EXACTLY what I was looking for, and I found it elsewhere. None of the experts could help.
