Video walkthrough for URL Rewrite Module

Last week I have recorded a video screencast that shows how to use URL Rewrite Module for IIS 7.0 to perform some common URL manipulations tasks. Today this video has been published on IIS.NET – check it out at this location.

The video demonstrates how to create rewrite rules to perform the following tasks:

  • Enabling user friendly and search engine friendly URLs for dynamic web pages;
  • Enforcing canonical host names, so that site visitors as well as search engines always use a particular domain name for your web site;
  • Using rewrite maps to define static mappings between requested and rewritten URLs;
  • Blocking unwanted site crawlers by aborting requests based on HTTP user-agent header.

In addition, the video shows how to test, troubleshoot and debug rewrite rules by using “Test pattern” tool and IIS 7.0 Failed Request Tracing.

Please take a look and leave comments or questions if anything is not clear or you would like to get more information on a particular topic.
