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.


Why do I need 301 redirect?

It is common practice to redirect one URL to another. When doing this, it is critical to observe best practices in order to maintain SEO value.

The 301 redirect is preferable for both users and search engines. Serving a 301 indicates to both browsers and search engine bots that the page has moved permanently. Search engines interpret this to mean that not only has the page changed location, but that the content—or an updated version of it—can be found at the new URL. The engines will carry any link weighting from the original page to the new URL.
