301 Redirection Management Plugin For WordPress

I’ve just implemented this awesome plugin across my WordPress blog network, including Linkbuildr, and I’m in love and no longer worry about the problems I would otherwise face without it. Redirection is a WordPress plugin to manage 301 redirections and keep track of 404 errors which if you have a large site can become a mess. If you ever are migrating a domain, or changing the structure if your website you’ll not want to do it without this plugin. I’ve gone back and deleted a lot of old posts that I felt were unethical with my practices, so this is also helping in redirecting the web traffic I’m still getting. I’ve taken the features list from the authors blog, Urban Giraffe;

Features include:

  • Supports both WordPress-based and Apache-based redirections
  • 404 error monitoring – captures a log of 404 errors and allows you to easily map these to 301 redirects
  • RSS feed for 404 errors
  • Custom ‘pass-through’ redirections allowing you to pass a URL through to another page, file, or website.
  • Full logs for all redirected URLs
  • Create redirections based upon a URL, browser, referring site, or login status
  • Automatically add a 301 redirection when a post’s URL changes
  • Full regular expression support
  • Fully localized
  • Export all redirections to CSV, XML, or Apache .htaccess files
  • Import Apache .htacces files

This plug is in the end all for 301′s and 404′s and if you check out the homepage for the Redirection WordPress Plugin, you’ll get a thorough walk through of all the features. For the most part you’ll be able to just install it and configure it as you see fit, and if you’ve never played around with 301′s, 404′s and .htaccess then you’ll need to sit down and do a little reading. So if you’re ready to get rocking you can go download the plugin.

    It seems too much work (installing extra plugin and setting it up) for just simple redirection.
    just rename the original index.php to something else and creat a new index.php file with header function will do .
    header("Location: http://newwebsite.com");

  2. Great idea I have 800 pages on my site and I have lots of problems so I will check out this plug in.

    Hi. I have used this plugin for almost a year now and its great! But… now I am wanting to export a backup of all of my redirections. I see there is this option listed in the features, but for some reason its not jumping out at me.  :P 

    Could you tell me where I find said export feature?

    Thanks a bunch!

  7. I Have a question regarding 301. If i create a URL in WP and do a 301 redirect to my affiliate URL. Does it make sense. Will google penalize me for it. I recently launched a webhosting blog and want to do the same as i’m using few affiliate program on this blog.
