I'm moving my shopping cart from a web based pay monthly e-commerce software system to Virtuemart shortly.
I have nearly 1100 products online and this system spits out some strange url's like:
One of the companies who is tendering for the job to rebuild the site has said:
The old links are not in a common rule so we will have to make links redirect manually so this work will take a lot of time (you said that you have more than 1000 products).
Couple of questions:
Would this be accurate?
How long would it take in hours approx to redirect 1100 urls to the new sites url's?
Are there any other options open to me that wont be detrimental to my standing in Google?
If you were in my position, what would you do about these redirects?
Thank you very much in advance for any assistance and advice you can offer.
