    Hi mates !

    i have a wp blog that has been up for about 8 months, i have been autoposting hundreds of articles a month and all of them got indexed ...

    And now i make my self a list of keywords that i want to target in my niche and i want to relaunch the site with new and unique and quality content because the site was just setting there and i didn't do anything with it .

    but what i want to know, is it ok if all the pages suddenly get down ? it's not gonna harm the site ?

    I've done once something simular to this. What I did, I created a new folder in the hosting, did my new site there, transffered all of my stuff I wanted to have. Let it sit there in the new folder until you make sure everything is the way you wanted to be. And finally redirect your domain to the new folder (from the Cpanel).

    Then in the .htaccess make sure you put this:

    # Only apply to URLs on this domain
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?yourdomain.com$

    # Only apply to URLs that aren't already under folder.
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/folder/

    # Don't apply to URLs that go to existing files or folders.
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    # Rewrite all those to insert /folder.
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /folder/$1

    # Also redirect the root folder.
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?yourdomain.com$
    RewriteRule ^(/)?$ folder/index.php [L]

    This way, when you want to access the blog from the admin side you type: h**p://w3.yourdomain.c0m/wp-admin
    and it will skip the folder part ;)

    I hope it helps...
