I have an automotive classified ad website that I need a 301 redirect to another category for certain cars that have been marked 'sold'
As an example the URL http://www.collectorcarads.com/Ford-Mustang/49063 would need to redirect to the higher category i.e. http://www.collectorcarads.com/make/Ford. The redirect will always be to the 'make' of the car. On the redirected page a message would need to appear along the lines of 'The car you were looking for is no longer available here are similar cars for sale'
A few things to consider:
-Site is in classic ASP with SQL server.
-ISAPI rewrite was used to create user friendly URLs
-There is an existing 301 redirect set up years ago to rewrite a SQL database column from 'adid' to 'carid'
-Sometimes URL's will be 404'd to a user friendly URL. These need to stay intact.
-The server header must properly show as a 301
Please contact me with any questions. I will answer promptly.
