When you have permanently moved a webpage from one location to another
When you have moved to a new domain
When you have duplicate webpages and want to canonicalise them to avoid being penalised
When you have permanently moved a webpage from one location to another, you should use a 301 redirect. 301 redirects ensure that search engines and users are directed to the right page, and are considered best practice by search engines.
It is likely that the old will still appear in search engine results and that users have bookmarked/stored it, so applying a 301 will ensure that all visitors to your site see the correct content.
A member of our development team will amend your web.config file and apply a 301 redirect to your website.
The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire to clarify your objectives. This briefing will be visible to all the team members involved with setting up the redirect and is the foundation for all our quality checks.
We will need to know your old URL and your new URL, and will also need access to your web.config file and Windows server.
A member of our development team will update your web.config file, replacing your old URL with your new URL. They will then post this updated file back to your Windows server and test that the redirection is working correctly.
