I have a client who is migrating from a WordPress website run by a different webmaster to a new Webflow site that I will be managing.
The old WordPress site is well-established, so naturally the client wishes to maintain her current SEO rankings. She is undergoing a complete rebrand and has changed the name of her business, domain, etc. The structure of the new site is markedly different from the old one. A few pages have the same slugs, but most don’t.
This is my first time moving a site, and I have a couple of questions:
Where is the 301 redirect meant to be implemented? Is this something I need to do on the new site, or does it need to be done on the old WordPress site?
If I need to do it here on Webflow, can I use the 301 Redirects section under “Hosting” to set up redirects for each page from the old site to the new?
I want to make sure I get this right for my client, so any help is greatly appreciated!
