For example, would changing a site from ASP pages (.asp) to .NET pages (.aspx) have any negative affect on rankings simply because the page extension is different?
Yes and no.
I say no because SEO has everything to do with content, such as text and titles, and incoming and outgoing links. Because of this your content will still be the same.
And I say yes because to a web crawler, these pages will be new because of the new extension, while the old extension now gives 404 errors which is bad for SEO.
But you have a solution. You need to keep the old pages there, but they don’t need to have any content, just make them throw a 301 error code in the header, then throw a Location to the new file. Web crawlers will then associate the new page with the old page and carry forward all the rankings. The other problem is incoming links. Those people will still have the old link, but at least it will forward to the new page.

We had a client contact us asking if they had already purchased their bandwidth, storage, and domain name from a site, if we could set it up for them. We agreed. (Saves us time)…
well it turns out it was wix.com where they purchased bandwidth, storage, and then a separate domain name hosted through a site they recommended.
Here is the thing. We don’t like using strictly flash based programs like wix.com. We signed up for the forum and found out several things were NOT available for use (HTML embedding, shopping cart that was actually usable, etc). We also found out wix.com is still in BETA version. (Nice to know now!)
Well it claim’s its SEO friendly. Our client asked us a few weeks ago why it wasn’t registering on google.com, yahoo.com or other search engines. We tried our hardest to get it to come up (Pardon me if I sound uneducated..my BF does most of the web design, I just help with what looks good & where)
It claims the free pages are SEO friendly. Well we tried to make our own free page to see how long it would take to show up. NEVER DID.
My BF asked their support team why it wasn’t showing up and we found a question that said it would take 10-15 days for google to pick up the site….(I’ve personally read it can take up to 6 months for a new site…)
This site has been up for MONTHS now, had plenty of searches and will still not come up. I’ve read that Flash made sites are VERY HARD for google and other search engines to pick up on. Is that true?
We found out through the "Ceo" of the company that wix uses a big SWF file for their main site (the actual place you sign up make your site etc.) then everyone’s individual site is ONE xml file. So bascially they have one SWF file running a million or so XML files.
Will this show up or should my client try to get his money back from them?
did you try using the 10 tags wix gives you under settings?
btw i’m also considering using wix to make a website for a small company but they don’t want to be limited to only having 10 tags so i’m trying to figure out if theres some way to get around that or if i should just dump wix. (my question –> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090816085645AAfZVFf) would you know anything about this matter?
