We have moved our website from classic ASP to Magento. In the process almost all our URLs have changed. I noticed some old style URL requests are being made with Google campaign tracking in the querystring. I need to pass the querystring through which I was not doing for these particular URLs.
Initially I had setup the redirect as permanent, 301. Below is an example of the old and new category URLs.
/category.asp?id=100 -> /electronics.html
Basically I just looked for the category.asp and the id and mapped it to the Magento equivalent not caring about any other parameters. Like I mentioned earlier I discovered that some instances of these URLs have Google campaign parameters.
My question is if I should still keep the redirect a permanent given that the Google parameters could vary? Below are some examples of what will happen:
/category.asp?id=100&utc_medium=email -> /electronics.html?utc_medium=email /category.asp?id=100&utc_medium=cpc -> /electronics.html?utc_medium=cpc
My thought is that if I'm going to make the redirect permanent it should redirect to the same URL each time. What I mean by that is that all URLs that contain category.asp?id=100 should go to electronics.html. Maybe that is a misunderstanding.
