301 Redirect using URLRewrite

May 11th, 2010
By: Cory Mathews

Just in case.. A 301 redirect tells the browser/search engine that the page has permanently been moved to this new address.

First install URLRewrite on a windows server with IIS7 from  http://www.iis.net/download/URLRewrite

After its installed a new button titled URL Rewrite will be added. Select it.

IIS7 URL Redirect

Under Actions click Add Rule(s)

Select Rule with URL Rewrite map

IIS7 Rule With Rewrite Map

Change the Rule Action to Redirect and give it any name you wish it makes no difference what it is.

Then under actions click Add Mapping Entry

IIS7 Mapping

In the Original Value field give the path to the old page without the http://www.example.com in the above example it redirects /oldpage.html to /newpage.html

Keep adding new Mapping Entries for every page you need to redirect.
