I’m being advised to set up 301 Redirects, as I’m replacing a friend’s website with a new one. It’s his business and I’m worried about loosing his Google ranking. The problem I have is I don’t have access to the current site or its creator. It’s hosted by Easily and the package needs to be updated first. The update I’ve been warned could kill the site. Access to the site would be via Forklift if the upgrade went well.
So how would I implement a 301 Redirect in this case?
