    Hi guys!

    Im moving my site to a new custom designed site so some pages need to be done with 301. Therefore i guess screaming frog is the best tool to crawl all the pages and 301 them. But it cost 99 pound. is there an alternative or cheaper way where i dont need to buy the license just for one time usage?

    There's one from the website of netpeak. Browse around their site, they have the spider software. There's also xenu sleuth which is just classic

    Their free version offers 500 URL crawl for free, your website has got higher number of pages? One free option is to list your website Google Webmaster. Submit your Sitemap, let Google crawl your entire site and it'll show you the list of all the pages, you can 301 your needed pages accordingly.

    I'm pretty sure Screaming Frog doesn't actually 301 the pages for you. It just scans to find out which pages have been 301'd already.

    If you want to redirect your pages, use .htaccess.
    If you want to check the response code of your pages, use Xenu Link Sleuth, as suggested above.
