A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect from one URL to another. In this section it's possible to manage all your 301 redirect rules from one place.
When do I need to do 301 redirects?
You should consider setting up 301 redirects in the following scenarios:
This tool allows you to type down your website URL and in return it will show you all the existing URLs on that site that are possible to redirect to your new pages. To create a redirection rule for one of your old URLs, drag it to the relevant redirection box next to the page you wish to redirect it to.
Internal Pages & Redirections
This section shows your current pages and all the links that are redirecting to each page. It is possible to manage your redirections - add more, delete existing ones or drag them from one page to the other.
Manually Add Redirection
Instead of using the drag and drop functionality, it is possible to manually add a redirection rule. Please note that there must not be any HTTP:// or Domain names in the 301 redirects, only the Directory part of the URL (e.g. everything after the domain and trailing slash).
So if you have an old url like http://www.yourdomain.com/myproducts and want it to 301 redirect to your new Products page, then you only add "myproducts" to the 301 Manager.
Products & Blog Posts
If you already had blog posts or E-commerce products on your website and wish to maintain their SEO value, it is also possible to redirect individual products and blog posts to their new pages. Click here to read more about 301 redirects for products and for blog posts.
