    Always use 301 redirect, as it is permanent and SEO friendly redirection method.

    Using 301 will not effect it as it will tell Google that URL is now moved to the new one... Its the best possible way to change busy URL's...

    That's the correct answer and once set up it should not effect the rank adversely
    If you have cPanel hosting the "Redirects" icon is where to find how to set it...

    Do 301 from cpanel. As simple as telling the page you want to redirect and to where.

    he pointed it exactly true.., 301 redirection is the best option, you can found in c-panel.., but it also depends on your hosting server.. some might have .htaccess file from where you can redirect..,

    Use a canonical url on a new website:
    <link rel="canonical" href="your old url">

    Please...

    301 is fast and permanent. How soon you will be reverted? it depends on crawl rate of this page. frequently crawled and visited page often gets changed quickly in search index. After setting up this redirection, you can force Google to crawl your website through Google webmaster.
