I can't recall the the site structure that you previously had (it looked
nice), but it seems as if the older blogging tool pointed to entries by
invoking a PHP file and passing it some arguments. Some CMS packages will
have a single fixed address with an argument like ?page=155, in which case
search engines will index locations in a peculiar, non-elegant manner. It
doesn't seem as if your old links broke completely, e.g.:
Be careful because PageRank can be dropped as a consequence. Maybe someone
can correct me and say that the custom error pages will preserve PageRank
given the right retrieval status.
