What is a permanent 301 Redirect

Apr 16, 2007   //   by freshtraffic   //   seo strategies, website principles  //  Comments Off

A 301 or permanent redirect basically tells a browser (or search engine spider) that the site or page it is accessing has moved permanently. It then immediately redirects that page to the new one.

Search engines like Google will attempt to pass SEO benefit (PR and anchor text benefits) from the old page to the new page.
