How to setup URL rewriting in .NET

Hello Experts!

I am an experienced web developer with PHP et al.  I have been providing consulting services for a client, and the solution to a particular problem involves URL rewriting.

My consultancy is purely strategic and conceptual at the moment, I plan to pull in contractors for the work, but at this stage they have asked me for scope and approx. estimates.

They use .NET - so I am unsure of how to implement a URL rewriting strategy with this stack.

Basically the client needs to maintain (in a database via a GUI), a list of URL aliases, which are then 301 permanently redirected to the destination URL.

Can someone help me by giving me the top-level steps necessary to achieve this with .NET, and perhaps also advise me on the SEO implications?

Here is an example:

Destination URL: www.adomain.com/im-in-english/
Alias: www.adomain.com/im-in-francaise-for-seo-but-need-to-go-to-the-above-page

All advice appreciated!

Cheers,

TheFoot

Actually, since .Net 3.5 there is no need for 3rd party URL rewriting.    You can use Page Routing...it's builtin
