404 pages and 301 redirects

    I built a site from scratch in Muse. After a successful launch, my client hired a company to manage their SEO. They sent me the following email:

    As part of our ongoing SEO efforts, we check for 404 pages and want to create 301 redirects to prevent users from landing on a dead page while visiting your website.

    Attached you will find a document outlining existing 404 pages along with the updated URL that the page needs to redirect to.

    Since I am unable to redirect these on my end, your web developer will need to implement the necessary adjustments to update these images with the recommended content.

    They sent me an excel file with 50 redirects. I have no idea how to go about doing this. The site is hosted with GoDaddy.

    Here is the site:

    I reached out to Adobe Forums to see if anyone had any ideas. I was directed to edit the htaccess code to this:
    #301 Redirects for .htaccess
    #Redirect a single page:
    Redirect 301 /oldpage_name.html https://www.domain.com/newpage_name.html
    I decided to do a test for 5 of the 50 redirects but then the site was no longer accessible. An error came up saying that there were too many redirects.

    Can anyone help? I am not sure if this is something I can do within Muse or through GoDaddy? I am willing to hire this out if necessary.

    Thank you!
