Is there a way that I can redirect a tag archive URL that shows up in Google search results to the post that the tag goes with instead of being directed to a page with nothing on it other than the tag as the title?

The tag archive URL that shows up in google results when "frozen anna doll" is the search term is http://frozentoys.net/tag/frozen-elsa-doll and I need it to redirect to the actual post that is tagged with "frozen anna doll" which has the URL of http://frozentoys.net/frozen-elsa-doll

Thanks in advance for any help,

Scott

If your redirect type is Apache .htaccess , then you need to add the following code in your .htaccess file i.e. Redirect 301 /tag/frozen-elsa-doll http://frozentoys.net/frozen-elsa-doll

You can easily get redirect code from this website i.e. http://www.rapidtables.com/web/tools/redirect-generator.htm

1. Your site doesn't load very well
2. Depending on SMS you might have some other options (then  .htaccess) that you might find more convenient.

Finally got your site. For worpress there are redirection plugins. And anyway, tags should be closed from indexation to avoid duplicate content (google about it - there's plenty on the net).
