Hi,

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

Code:
RewriteRule ^http://carsizzler.com/news-detail/001831090/Hindustan-Motors-Inaugurates-Mitsubishi-Range-Dealership-In-Haryana.html$ http://carsizzler.com/news-detail/00183/Hindustan-Motors-Inaugurates-Mitsubishi-Range-Dealership-In-Haryana.html [NC,R=301,L]
But this doesn't seem to work. The redirection isn't working at all.

Code:
Old URL's
http://carsizzler.com/news-detail/001831090/Hindustan-Motors-Inaugurates-Mitsubishi-Range-Dealership-In-Haryana.html
http://carsizzler.com/news-detail/001837389/Hindustan-Motors-Inaugurates-Mitsubishi-Range-Dealership-In-Haryana.html

New URL
http://carsizzler.com/news-detail/00183/Hindustan-Motors-Inaugurates-Mitsubishi-Range-Dealership-In-Haryana.html
Please help.
