redirect html to wordpress (5 posts)

    Hello,

    I have a site in html http://www.ivespa.com which I would like to change to WordPress.org. I have the new wp-theme but am worried about the search engine with the different url's the wp site will have. I was told to use a 301 redirect, would a 301 redirect be required for every page or would one 301 cover the complete site.
    Any other suggestions/recommendations would be welcomed.

    Sincerely,
    spfrge

    A 301 redirect would be required for each page.

    Or when you create the new site you can create the pages with the same URL so it wouldn't have to do that.

    You can use a plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-permalinks/ and you can define each URL to match each page.

    Thank-you Aaron.

    Would the 301 be entered only on the old HTML page?
    Would it be entered in the head section for each page?

    Is there a 301 tutorial which you recommend?

    Sincerely,
    Manuel

    I would use this plugin to do it http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-301-redirects/

    If you look at the screenshot it is basically a page where you enter your old URL's on the left and on the right you enter the new URL. Simple.
