What is 301 redirect?
Redirection is the process of forwarding one URL to a different URL.
A redirect is a way to send both users and search engines to a different URL from the one they originally requested.
The three most commonly used redirects are 301, 302, and Meta Refresh.
A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect which passes between 90-99% of link equity to the redirected page. The 301 status code means that a page has permanently moved to a new location. In most instances, the 301 redirect is the best method for implementing redirects on a website.
