I'm getting ready to migrate a website from an old domain into a new one . From all the research I've done and past experiences I know that it is important to set up the 301 redirects on a page-to-page basis such that sub-folders and deep content pages are redirected to corresponding sub-folders and deep content pages on the new domain.
However, I'm getting a lot of push back from the IT team as well as my boss. They want to get this done fast and think it is too tedious to do on a page level basis, so they asked me how that would compare if we did the 301 redirects on a directory level. Can someone tell me what the difference would be? and why it's so important to do it on a page level? it seems as though if I don't get this point across to them, they will just take the easier way out.
I've never done it on a directory level and haven't read much out there on that topic so I was hoping someone here could help.
Thanks in advance!
