Redirecting old URLs
 
Hi,

I have an HTML website that I'm about to change to a php based platform. How can I redirect my already indexed html pages to the new URLs so my site wouldn't disappear from the search engines?

Thanks

Hey there,

I guess the 301 Redirect is what you are looking for? It automatically sends everyone who visits your old links to a website specified by you i.e. your new url, including google bots etc!

You can find all the codes and info here if you want:

Use canonical tags to redirect your pages.

You can redirect your old pages to new urls, by 301 redirect through .htaccess file.

The best way is to use 301 permanent redirect.

Redirect in the head section might look suspect to the search engines.

Why Do I Need to Use 301 Redirects?

When things change on a website or blog and you do not have a 301 redirect instruction covering the change an few things can happen:

•If someone clicked a link on another site that points to a page that has now moved or is gone the visitor will get a 404 error page, indicating the web server cannot find the page. When you have done your own custom 404 error page complete with full navigation and a message about this page must have moved the person is still lost as to where they should go on your site for the information they wanted. With a 301 redirect instruction in place you can send them to the correct page or an alternative page if the page was deleted.

•A search engine bot is just like a visitor who has been directed to a page from a link within your site, from another site or from their records in their index. They need to know also that the page has removed or moved to a new location.

•Your page is listed in a search engine or a directory somewhere and that link you worked so hard for is now useless if you moved it without a 301 redirect. You need to keep that incoming link by including a 301 redirect instruction so you don’t loose the link. A directory editor might not take the time to find where you moved the page to and just delete the link.
