I just renamed 3 second tier pages. What will help them get indexed? Should I use 301 redirects? Thanks, Glynis

Hello Glynis,
If you have made lots of changes to your site, such as renaming pages, you can resubmit your sitemap if you would like. We don't have the ability to 301 Redirect pages to other pages. It is important not to do this very often though as Google might look at this like spam. The best way to get Google to come to your site and keep fresh copies of your site pages in its index is to add to your site often.

Here is how to resubmit your sitemap in your Google Webmaster account:

1. Sign into your Google Webmaster account.
2. Click on the URL link of the site you want to resubmit a sitemap for.
3. In the Sitemaps section click on the link that says "More".
4. Click "Resubmit Sitemap".

I hope you find this information helpful.
