Need help to create 301 dynamic redirect urls

Postby jennypretty » Fri Mar 22, 2013 6:52 pm


I have one question about is it possible to create dynamic 301 redirect urls.

I have a dating site and the url format is like /dating/united_states_singles/. A few months ago, I changed it to /free-dating/united_states/ (added free and removed singles). When I checked on Google webmaster tool, both URLs (old and new) are indexed, which create duplicate title and description tags.

Is it possible to create 301 redirect for all old urls to new urls format?

Thanks very much!
Have a nice day!

Code: Select all
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^dating/united_states_singles/?(.*) http://www.yourdomain.tld/free-dating/united_states/$1 [QSA,L,R=301]

Assuming you delete the physical directory (if any) dating/united_states_singles/ and put, this in a .htaccess at the domain's root (where -www.yourdomain.tld lands on the server).
