Redirecting users to a different page is most useful when you change the webpage's address. If you think there's a chance that someone will go to the old address, ie from a search engine or link trade, leave the old page up as long as possible with the following modification.
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0" url="http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html">
This, as with all meta tags, needs to be placed between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags. You can change the content="0" to any number of seconds that you want the browser to wait before redirecting.
