Can I migrate 301 SEO URLs of categories and products?
Yes, Cart2Cart supports the migration of 301 SEO URLs as an additional option. However, it’s possible only for a limited number of shopping carts. Some of them require the installation of additional plugins. Read FAQs for more detailed information.
Migrate 301 SEO URLs to:
- CS-Cart (from only)
- Bigcommerce (no module installation required)
- Magento (to and from; no module installation required)
So, how does it work?
Lets take migration to WooCommerce. For example, you have a necessary plugin installed and your 301 SEO URLs look like this in your Source Store's admin panel:
After the transfer to WooCommerce, your redirects will look like this:
(Providing, of course, that you have installed the necessary WooCommerce Redirection plugin beforehand)
In most cases, 301 redirects are put on relative URLs. Therefore, after you switch your domain name (so that it is the same as on your Source store) - all the redirects will remain unchanged.
For instance, if your Source store contains redirection similar to this:
(Old URL) www.mystore.com/category/page1.html
(New URL) www.mystore.com/category/page2.html
It will be the same after migration and a domain switch.
However, if you’ll change the domain name on the Target store to different one, than on a Source store, your redirection will still lead users to www.mystore.com/category/page2.htm.
Please note: The additional option allows to migrate redirects already existing on Source Cart.
