    I've seen documentation saying that the correct way to do a 301 redirect is:

    Code:
    Redirect /old-page.html /new-page.html
    I've also seen documentation saying that the correct way to do a 301 redirect is:

    Code:
    Redirect 301 /old-page.html /new-page.html
    Which is correct?

    so without the "301" in the .htaccess file, it's not technically a 301 redirect?

    I just redirected 25 articles from the old version of my site into the WP version of my site. I should make them 301s, right?
