I am moving a Wordpress site to Drupal and want to ensure that proper 301 redirects are in place for SEO purposes.
The old urls are in the form of:
I was hoping this would be simple enough with the Redirect module, but when attempting to enter a path such as
?page_id=123 I see the following message.
The source path /?page_id=123 is likely a valid path. It is preferred to create URL aliases for existing paths rather than redirects.
I want to be absolutely sure that a 301 redirect is created but I am unsure that adding an alias is the correct method for this.
Another approach I have considered is adding the following code to the .htaccess file in the web root.
Redirect 301 /?page_id=123 https://www.exacmple.com/node/321
Again, I am unsure if this approach is recommended for Drupal 8.
How should I add redirects and avoid the new Drupal site is penalized in search results?
