Thanks to all who replied. It looks much better now. Sounds like the
upshot is: make redirections when possible and submit changed urls to
http://www.google.com/addurl/ to get them processed more quickly.
Updating links to point to the new place is probably also a good idea,
but I'd done a lot of that without seeing much improvement several
months ago.
