I have this problem with 301 redirects
Some of my pages url have been changed and the google is still indexing the old urls of that pages and it opens the blank page when i open them up

So i made the 301 redirects to the new urls

this is the code i use in htaccess

Redirect permanent /cooking/calamari228.html http://www.example.com/cooking/calamari.html

Redirect permanent /cooking/fries8.html http://www.example.com/cooking/fries.html

the old url with 228 at the end changed to the new one
i did that for a lot of pages that moved to another location

is that done correctly, can this affects site indexing by google?

a permanent redirect tells google that the files no longer live at their old url and will now always be found at the new url

that is the proper way to do it

how long until they get it right in the index?

results may vary
