    As others have pointed out correctly you need to signal to your website visitors, and probably more important to Google and other search engines, that your pages have moved. You do this by getting your old website to issue 301 responses to requests. These are a bit like the 404 message we all familiar with, except that being responses in the 300-range these are not "errors" in the sense, and since the visitor is redirected they don't see any real change, apart from the web page address altering in the browser.

    I was in this position recently when I bought an old website and wanted to transfer the traffic to my existing site (like a site merge).

    Being a programmer I coded a utility to handle this and being a lazy person I wanted to be a change the structure of the site with minimum effort.

    It works so well I thought it might be worth tidying it up and allowing others to use it. So here it is in all its glory.
