    Question Dynamic url redirects with asp vbscript

    Hi all,

    I am trying to redirect 900 current dynamic shopping cart urls like
    www.example.com/prodtype.asp?PT_ID=93&strPageHistory=cat
    to new seo friendly 404.asp page created ones like
    www.example.com/hair-care/12-3

    The cart uses a 404.asp page and prodtype.asp page for construction of urls and i need a statement to redirect all old dynamic urls or a big case statement to re-direct at least the 20 most important high ranking pages.

    Tried a couple of things but no succes yet, please help if yuou have any ideas.
    Thanks
    Andy

    isapi_rewrite comes to mind, if your hosting has it.
    are the static pages already created?
    is this the site you are talking about?

    Hi,
    The conversion has not been done live as of yet as i wish to get all required info first so i can implement changes all at once. I have a testing website to ensure any mods i complete are ok before i use them on my live store.

    I take it you googled the site.
    Cheers
    Andy

    I think there are more complications to this than there are benefits.
    Search engines pick up dynamic urls with no problem these days.
    Gorgeously done site, by the way.

    PS: may I ask what shopping cart you are using? I've tried several but still can't find that perfect one.

    The cart is a modified version 5 cactushop, i personally like the setup and backend, but it did need a bit of work to improve seo side.

    They do now have a new version 6 pro which has some nice new features...

    Cheers

    I too would recommend ISAPI rewrite.

    Error pages are there for a reason. They should not be used for SEO redirection.


    You need to install the rewrite component then add the rules that you want.

    You then need to edit your scripts so outputted URLs would be in the SEO format instead of the original querystring format.
