    301/legacy url tracking in Umbraco 9

    Hi – I would be interested to hear what solution in Umbraco 9 that people are using for 301/legacy url tracking.

    The in-build tracking is fine for simple umbraco content changes, but is there a content-managed solution our there where an editor could specify urls from a prior website, say for example a html, cfm, php url that should now land the user on an umbraco page? (or to add one or more “alternative” urls to an umbraco content page)

    I realise the IIS Rewrite module can still be used in the umbraco 9/netcore world, but often due to volume, a content-managed solution is necessary?

    Is there a popular redirects/url tracking package for umbraco 9 yet?

    I hope to release SEOChecker for Umbraco V9 soon that supports this scenario.

    I've only just started really testing out v9 sites, but so far Skybrud Redirects has been really easy to use and has filled the need for us.

    We have literally just upgraded a massive site from v7.14 to v9 and had to programmatically remove the ContentFinderByRedirectUrl because it just didn't work and implement our own middleware instead.

    We had over 6000 redirects and when I stepped through the Umbraco code I could see that the UrlProvider was always returning # for the destination content so nothing ever redirected.

    Also I couldn't see any way the code would cater for circular or self referential redirects (which happen) so I felt safer to avoid it entirely.

    I will report it once I've iron all the bugs out of our upgrade.
