Best way to redirect old url to new one?

    HI,

    What is the best way to redirect old url to new one, without loosing ranking?

    I'm using mod_rewrite for my url's and I wanna redirect the rewrited url to new ones.

    Example:
    Old url: www.mysite.com/page_1.html
    New url: www.mysite.com/dir/productname.html without the id.

    Tnx

    Dont' mean to crash your thread but I am also wondering what the best way is for forwarding an old domain to a new one with the least amount of PR and SE position loss (example: We want to use a new domain for our existing site and we need PR 6 olddomain.com to be forwarded to PR0 newdomain.com)

    Thanks in advance for all the advice.

    Mode rewrite or url redirect by server side will be better, but either way, it takes some time to make the new url have the same pr as the old url.

    Tnx for the reply's.

    Is there a limit of max lines on a .htaccess file? Because I have more than 600 lines with redirect 301.

    If you have access to apache (or other web server) configuration, it's better to use mod rewrite.

    I'm using mod_rewrite!

    My original url's are like this: mysite.com/file.php?id=2 and they where rewrited to mysite.com/file_2.html

    So mysite.com/file_2.html is my old url and they are indexed well in SE, but now I'm using new url's like mysite.com/dir/name.html

    What I wanna know is, the best option to tell SE that my url's are changed without loosing ranking.

    Hope you understand me :)
