I asked for help over at WordPress Answers StackExchange for doing a 301 Redirect for my website, which will involve a permalink structure change also.
One of the suggested solutions was
301 Redirect via
Apache (.htaccess) and then use a plugin for internal redirects on the new site.
The person who answered was not sure if using this two step approach will affect SEO and suggested I ask over here.
So will doing a 301 Redirect and then having a plugin also redirect to the correct URL affect how Google indexes my new site, PageRank or any other SEO rankings?
