How to Redirect Static HTML Pages to a DNN portal

Have you ever been into a situation where you had built static HTML  pages and later you wanted to migrate them to a DNN portal?

Well, if you are wondering if there’s a way that the old static HTML pages to be redirected to new DNN pages so they will not lose their rankings in the search engines, then you’ve come to the right place. You don't have to worry about it anymore...URL Adapter solves this challenge.

In the next few minute, you're going to find out the quickest and the easiest way to redirect your old URLs to the new DNN ones using URL Adapter. Watch a video tutorial that covers from a simple scenario where just the extension changed to more fancy stuff using multiple advanced rules.

It's no secret that using a permanent redirect for such migration to DNN will certainly pass all link juice (ranking power) to the redirected page. This indicates to both browsers and search engine bots that the page has moved permanently. Search engines interpret this to mean that not only has the page changed location, but that the content—or an updated version of it—can be found at the new URL.

Also be aware that when moving a page from one URL to another, the search engines will take some time to discover the permanent redirect, recognize it, and credit the new page with the rankings and trust of its predecessor.

So you can have your cake and eat it too. You can easily migrate your previous static website to a new, cleaner and more usable DNN portal while keeping your SEO rankings.

If you do not currently take advantage of SEO capabilities, it’s time to maximize your DNN portal potential with URL Adapter. That’s it for now! Stay tuned for more to come!
