Overview

This guide shows you how to Add a 301 & 302 Redirects in Webuzo. A 301 redirect means that the page has permanently moved to a new location. A 302 redirect means that the move is only temporary. To a user they seem to work the same way, but they aren’t the same as far as search engines are concerned. Search engines sense the different types of redirects, and handle them differently. If the wrong type of redirect has been set up, search engines may become confused, resulting in a loss of traffic.


Procedure

You can Add a Redirect from your Webuzo Enduser Panel > Domain > Redirects
