What Is a Redirect?
301 Moved Permanently. A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect
from an old site link to a new site link while still maintaining SEO value. In most instances, the 301 redirect is the best method for implementing redirects on a website.
Be aware of "Redirect Loop" which can cause a link to continue to redirect and never land on a page. For example, if A points to B and B points back to A, this can cause an endless loop and browser issues.
How Do I Create a Redirect?
- To get started login to your site's Admin.
- Select Settings / Redirects / Add Redirect.
- In the form, select your site domain by clicking the button next to Site and enter the Redirect From and Redirect To page links.
Example: I've changed my old services page and would like for anyone clicking on the old link to redirect to my new page.
- Enter the old domain path www.example.com/services/oldpage/ and the new page www.example.com/services/newpage/
- Make sure to Save!
Now any time a customer clicks on the Old Services link, they will be redirected to the New Services page.
