This free tool was created for website owners who have decided to migrate their WordPress websites to next.js or to use next.js in conjunction with WordPress. If you want to setup redirects in next.js, you need to put your redirects into your next.config.js file. This is a bit tricky, because you need to write the redirects in a specific way. And it would take forever if you write them all by yourself. That's why I created wpToNext to convert your WordPress redirects to next.js in seconds.

In search engine optimization we use redirects to tell search engines that our content or a url has moved to a new location. This is important, because you want to transfer all that trust you build with that url, or backlinks still pointing to this url, to your website as well.Otherwise loss in traffic or rankings can occur.
Just put yourself into the position of a webcrawler. Someone told you in the past your content can be found on another url and suddenly this redirect is gone. Maybe there is a third party website that still links to your old url. In both scenarios either the user or the webcrawler would be confused or frustrated. That's why it's important to bring your redirects with you.
