Hi!,

 

Recently I've got my client's URLs rewritten because of non SEO reasons. Obviously, I had to change the URLs on the menus and on the sitemap, for the new "static" version of these pages.

 

Common sense dictates that I should redirect the old "dynamic" URLs to the new static ones for SEO purposes, so I can transfer the rankings to those newly created URLs, however that would create an infinite loop between the static and dynamic URLs of every page.

 

What would be the best SEO practice in this case, to make sure not to lose the rankings and transfer them to the newly created pages?

 

Please let me know

 

Best,

Carlos

Really? I don't see that from your description and, if you see it like that, you're probably making a mistake somewhere.

 

In any redirect situation, there are at minimum two URLs: where you're redirecting from, and where you're redirecting to.

 

Where you're redirecting from should return a HTTP redirect response such as a 301, 302 or 307, depending on the context.

 

Where you're redirecting to should return a HTTP 200 response, otherwise there was no point redirecting there - you should have redirected to somewhere else.

 

Some URL has to actually serve content, and that's where you should be redirecting to.
