Title: 301 redirects
Post by: Seofinder on 04-20-2010, 19:57:22
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.

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.

301 re-direct the page you were looking for them now that a permanent move to another location for that matter Google or other search engines are a safe way to talk. This is a search engine to update its records, and ultimately as an existing and established to handle the new page.

A 301 redirect means permanently moved to a new Url. Usually a 301 redirect includes the address to which the resource has been moved. when our site find the virus or lose the data from server. Then 301 redirect can be many reasons:

1 The website is similar but domain name has changed.
2 Two website are merging in one page.

301 redirect is a catch phrase often used in SEO where nobody really explains how to do it. Many people feel too dumb to ask "how do I do a 301 redirect?" because they feel they should just know what one is.

Use a 301 redirect to move a site from

http://www.oldurl.com/uncool/ (root of the old homepage)
to http://www.newurl.com/cool/

Create a .htaccess file in your root directory. If one already exists then you can just add this line of code to it.

Redirect permanent / http://www.newurl.com/cool/

in addition you can use a 301 redirect to move any given page.

Redirect permanent /bla/bla.html /newspot/bla.html

301 redirects are used to permanently move a site to a new location. Search engines do not apply penalties to 301 redirects the way they apply them to many other types of redirects.

301 redirection is known as permanent redirection and it is helpful to redirect a page permanently from one location to another. If you redirect a page through 301 redirection, it retrieves the already received values of backlinks from that old page(from where it was redirected to new one).

A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect from one URL to another. 301 redirects send site visitors and search engines to a different URL than the one they originally typed into their browser or selected from a search engine results page.

301 indicates to both browsers and search engine bots that the page has moved permanently to new URL. 301 redirects pass 90% to 99% link equity to the new URL and Google won't punish your website for redirecting old URLs to the new ones. So just work on your broken links and the issue will be resolved. Use appropriate method to redirect URLs and have a check if they are working fine or not.

A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect which passes between 90-99% of link equity (ranking power) to the redirected page. 301 refers to the HTTP status code for this type of redirect. In most instances, the 301 redirect is the best method for implementing redirects on a website.
