Can someone explain 301 redirects and how effective they are. Remember keep the wording simple you’re dealing with someone who knows absolutely no html and is thick headed about learning any.

It's actually very simple.

Open notepad. Save it as ".htaccess" file. Nothing else should be added to it's name.

In the file, type in pages you want to redirect.

Example:

redirect 301 /page001.html

Keep spaces as in example. First URL is your current URL. Second URL is where you want to get redirected.

Do the same for all webpages you are redirecting. Place all codes to .htaccess file and upload it to the root directory.

a 301 re-direct is a safe way of telling google or any other search engine for that matter that this page they were looking for has now permanently moved to another location. This allows the search engine to update it's records and will ultimately treat this new page as an existing and established one.

End result, you won't lose your serp rankings for that page and hopefully google will simply replace the url for the ranking you have! Hope that helped.

Thanks I was wondering what this meant.  I have a couple broken links on my game design website so I'm going to use a 301 re-direct and hopefully not get punished by SEO :)

301 redirects are permanent redirects from one page file to another. They are used when the file name of a website page is changed or the domain name of a website is changed. Here is an example:

You have a page on www.yourwebsite.com and the page file name is called -

www.yourwebsite.com/page1.html

Say you want to change the page file name to more accurately reflect the page contents (let's say wildlife in this example). The new page file name you want is -

www.yourwebsite.com/wildlife.html

You would need a 301 redirect to point to the new page. This would tell the search engines that "page1" is now the "wildlife page" on "yourwebsite". Hope this helps.

Regards,

301 redirect is the best way to ensure that users and search engines are directed to the correct page. The 301 status code means that a page has permanently moved to a new location.

a 301 re-direct is a safe way of informing search engines or any other seo for that matter that this web page they were looking for has now completely shifted to another location. This allows search engines optimization to bring up to date it's information and will eventually cure this new web page as an current and established one.
