I have long time client that we setup a store for with about 50,000 items about 5 years ago in OsCommerce. Now we have built a new site with magento with about 75,000 items. We want to redirect old url’s to correct page on new site / new url. Google as of now see’s just under 10,000 pages.

What would you’ll recommend?

Your help and ideas are greatly appreciated!

Any thoughts on this???

We could try to catch this, then perform a search based on the name..

OLDdomain.com/shop/10x14-smoking-sign-p-55555.html

Turns in to search of : “10x14 smoking sign p”

(the “p” is there because all we would do is strip out the record number and the dashes)

I am not sure if I can do a actual 404 page, with the search result in it (that would be best), but we can absolutely redirect to a search..

NEWDOMAIN.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=10x14+smoking+sign+p

Possibly we can perform a search, if it returns one product send them to that product’s page directly?
