Do you know you to handle redirects?

Last updated by Brady Stroud [SSW] 8 days ago.See history

When migrating your old website to a new technology stack, maintaining SEO and avoiding potential 404 errors is crucial. Implementing redirects ensures smooth traffic transition and preserves your SEO rankings.

Choosing the Right Redirect Method

1. Application Level

Client-Side Redirects: Easy but poor for SEO and maintenance. Migrating pages in the future would make this approach cumbersome.

Server-Side Application: A dedicated web app can handle redirects, but maintenance and scalability become challenging over time.

2. CDN Level (Global)

Edge Level Redirects: Ideal for global distribution and ease of management. Solutions like Azure Front Door or Cloudflare can be effective.
