You must be thinking that, how to redirect all of your mostly used old URLs to your new site now. So,here is an easy way to do is by creating a 301 Permanent redirect using Magento’s URL Rewrite Management.Here is a step by step procedure: Assuming then that this will be a redirect from one page to another, if I wanted to move and/or rename this page to a new URL, for example: From: http://www.domain.com/old-url.html To: http://www.domain.com/new-url.html I would do the following in Magento to create the appropriate permanent redirect: 1. Navigate to Catalog > Url Rewrite Management 2. Click the “Add Urlrewrite” button 3. Select “Custom” from the “Create Urlrewrite” drop-down menu 4. The “Urlrewrite Information” form would be completed thusly: ID Path: old-url.html Request Path: old-url.html Target Path: http://www.domain.com/new-url.html Redirect: Permanent(301) ID Path and Request path are the same: the path off the root of the url to redirect FROM – everything after (not including) the domain name and trailing slash. Target path is the URL to redirect TO.
