Google's John Mueller said in the Google+ Hangout from last Friday that he'd recommend you keep your 301 redirects live and in place for at least a year after you set them up. He said "I'd aim for at least a year," when it comes to keeping your 301 redirects in place.
He said it can take 6-months to a year for Google to fully recognize a site has moved. Plus you may have people finding old links and if those no longer have redirects, they may lead to a 404 page or a parked domain, which would result in a bad user experience.
Most 301 plug-ins on WPDo you want the good solution or the easy solution? The good solution, whether you're moving to, from or within WordPress--or any other CMS--is to code the redirects yourself.
Keep Your 301 Redirects Active For Over A YearHahahahaha. Keep your 301 redirects in place FOREVER. And that's all.
