I've just finished a website redesign for a client.
I kept as much of the URL structure in tact as i could, however the main difference is that their old site links were all ending in .html now obviously with SS they dont, my question is do i need to bother with a 301 redirect for EVERY page??
they all work fine still because SS ignore extensions anyway, but my client is panicking because he spent so much on link building and SEO and now think all of the "juice" will be lost. can anybody shed any light on this?
Take a look at http://www.internetofficer.com/seo-tool/redirect-check/ as long as its registering as a direct link you're good. It wouldn't hurt to add a canonical links to your header to avoid loosing juice between http://mysite.com/page and http://mysite.com/page/ :
