Probably a simple problem, but I cant seem to figure it out: I've recently created a new website from scratch to replace an older website. The old website had a good SEO ranking which is obviously something I want to keep.
Since the new website also has a new structure there are some directories from the old site/structure which I've dropped completely. However there are quite a lot of external links pointing to these directories, or more specifically files within the old directories. So my questions boils down to this: How do I redirect all/any hits on files within certain sub-directories?
www.mydomain.com/oldsubdirectory/somefile1.file --> mydomain.com/newdirectory www.mydomain.com/oldsubdirectory/somefile2.anothertypeoffile --> mydomain.com/newdirectory www.mydomain.com/oldsubdirectory/somefile3.fileofsometype --> mydomain.com/newdirectory
