301 redirect

I have question about 301 redirect.
I changed the url of my internal page in my site.
Do I need notify google about it or do I have to do only 301 redirect to this page?
How long should I leave the 301 redirect?
Thank you.

A 301 redirect should be good enough. I think Google allows the notification only if the site URL has been changed.

I don't see a reason why you should have a time limit on the redirection. Let it be there forever. Or at least as long as there is some link pointing to it or Google visiting that page. Better put a 301 and forget.

You should 301 redirect the old URL of that page to the new one and use "Fetch as Google bot" option in Google Webmasters to let Google know about the changes. You have to wait until Google crawls and finds out that the URL has been permanently moved to a new location before it updates or replaces the new URL with the old one in its index.

After changing the link of your internal page do the following steps:
1. Implement 301 redirect for that link with new link.
2. Inform to the google about the changes you have done by submitting the new url to google through add url
3. Let the redirect be there until unless your old url in the search engine gets replaced by a new url.
4. It is better to retain redirect forever.

Let me tell you that if you implement a 301 redirect, you should keep it always. Even if in the browser you see the new url indexed, if you're planning to do it temporaly, you can do a 302 (temp redirect) but I should advice you to keep always the 301 if this change is permanent. Notifying Google when you have done this redirection will be the next step...

First of all you have to create a new sitemap and submit it in webmaster to easily crawl all the pages.

You just need to 301-redirect those url to new url.. there is no harm into this and you would get benefit of this.. as 301-redirect is permanent redirect, consequently it is SEO friendly..

I disagree with some suggestions because the question being asked doesn't provide enough information to give the correct answer.
"I changed the url of my internal page in my site."

For example, how many URL's did you change?
Is your website running content management system (which if it does, then changing a single category name may affect all your other internal pages within that category).

Here's Google's take on 301 and when it could be useful

Also, at times it may be smarter to just chuck 404 and simply create a new page for your new URL (provide unique content on it) this way, you can completely avoid 301 all while having a fresh content.

All webmasters should strongly consider "if and when" they should redirect using "301 moved permanently" because you are telling Google "the URL you requested has now been moved permanently (doesn't exist anymore) but this URL does (your new URL)" it is absolutely critical then, that the new URL has very similar content to see SEO benefits.

To implement a 301 redirect for websites that are hosted on servers running Apache, you'll need access to your server's .htaccess file. (If you're not sure about your access or your server software, check with your webhoster.) For more information, consult the Apache .htaccess Tutorial and the Apache URL Rewriting Guide. If your site is hosted on a server running other software, check with your hoster for more details

Just use the 301 redirect Google will take care of the rest if everything is right.
Keep the 301 there forever if possible.
