I migrated my blog from the /blog location to the root folder this weekend. Sadly, all my attempts to redirect so that my SEO rankings and links are preserved seem to be going south. I added the following bit of code in the .htaccess folder:
rewriterule ^blog(/.*)? $1 [L,R=301]
Let's just say it didn't do re-directs the way I wanted them. It just redirected every internal link in the website (say on post titles or comment links, etc...) go back to the home page in the root folder. All my old /blog links (with the exception of images) just led back to the home page in the root folder as well. ACK! Does anyone have any idea what I've done wrong?
