We are about to move over to a new website and need advice on handling the 301 redirects.
We have a large real estate website with around 12,000 pages, a lot of these are properties (about 10,000)
On our old website, the url structure for each property is as follows -
on our new site, the url structure is
The property ID number is always different from old site to new. The way we see it, we have two options.
a.) a manual redirect of each and every property url. A very very long job
b.) a folder level redirect, so redirect the 'property' folder on the old site into the 'properties' folder on new. The con with this one is we are not sure if this is the best route to take, if it is how we would go about it?
Some advice would be really appriciated guys. I know there are somne hyper intellient SEO's in here.
