    Right now I have a live site and a test site. My live site is using a old seo mod for my site. The new Site has a new Seo mod Software for my site. I am trying to redirect my old links to the new ones on my test site. I have a lot of products that I would want to redirect. My question is in my htaccess file I have 1 redirect for one product on my test site Example.

    RewriteRule ^my-product-p-955.html$ [R=301,L]

    Should I add all 2000 rewrite Products on this my htaccess file ?
    Is it bad to have to many 301 rewrites in the htaccess file ?

    I have read that it would slow the site down. If I should not do that then How can I tell my htaccess file to maybe look to another file to see all 2000 redirects. I hope I made this clear. I need to find a way to do the redirect for 2000 products. Thanks
