I am going through the process of porting all forum data from PHP to ASP.net, it's quite a long and difficult process. There are around 30,000 threads, it's been online for quite a few years.
How important is it for me to do 301 redirects from those forum posts to the new forum posts address? It would be quite a painstaking, difficult and slow process matching them up.
Does it matter that much? Should I just take the SEO hit and start fresh with the new one and just wait for Google to reindex it all? Or should I be spending time on this.
