We got our website done by a local company and they made a mess, There were multiple URLs to a single page and Google Webmaster Tool popped errors, showing duplication in title tags.
We immediately informed the company who did our website, They fixed the problem - created a unique url for each page, But now old urls won't work. Its been 3-4 days.
We've been trying to use .htaccess to 301 redirect each old url to new url manually, but its not working.
We're using the following .htaccess code
But this doesn't seem to work. The redirection isn't working at all.
