Renaming or moving old webpages to new ones require the use of 301 redirects so that your website visitors can be pointed to the page you want them to go.

301 Redirects should only be used when you are permanently moving a webpage or entire website. If you are looking for a short term solution, you should use a 401 or 302 temporary redirect instead.

There is no limit on the number of redirects you can have. This will not negatively affect your website’s SEO or performance.

One limit however, is if you use 301 for layered or chained redirects together. The search engine does not want to spend time “hopping” from redirect to redirect. It is best to limit redirects to one “hop” or two at the most.
