I have several small HTML microsites sites that have been sitting around for several years and I plan to switch them over to WordPress. Though they have little content (most have fewer that 10 pages), they are indexed and have some incoming links. I plan to do a permanent redirect to the new pages. I know that there are plugins for WordPress that can handle the job, but it seems to be a relatively simple matter to add 10 lines to my htaccess and just specifically redirect those pages.
Does anyone think either way is better than the other? The reason?
