Recursive .htaccess redirects

Posted on : 08/22/2011 | By : Jeremy Schell | In : Coding, Internet


Recently I came across a request on Twitter for an effective means to update the .htaccess file to redirect all pages to a new domain without having to update for all subdirectories.  Here are a couple choices which can be easily placed in the root .htaccess file.

OPTION 1 (this does not need the RewriteEngine module)

Option 2 (this requires the use of the RewriteEngine module)

  • Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^oldwebsiteaddress.com$ [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.oldwebsiteaddress.com$
    RewriteRule (.*)$ http://www.YourNewDomainAddressHere.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Over the past twenty years I’ve been fortunate to have worked with a number of great companies and helped develop and manage their various CRM and loyalty programs. Many of these include National City Bank, Makers Mark, Valvoline Instant Oil Change, Canadian Mist, Kentucky Lottery and Purina to name a few. With any loyalty program and marketing campaign, it is imperative from the beginning to establish goals and develop measurements against those to identify success as well as areas of improvement.

2011 is the year to turn up the frequency

Posted on : 01/06/2011 | By : Jeremy Schell | In : CRM, Internet, Marketing, social media



One of the most common questions as marketers we receive is how often to communicate with our prospects and consumers.  Regardless if it is door-to-door, telemarketing, direct mail, email and now social media, the question has always been the same, how often is too much?
