Understanding your eDirectory sitemap

Now that you understand what a 301 redirect is, please proceed with the article to understand some usage tips.

301 redirects are incredibly important from an SEO perspective.

Because it's a permanent change, when you do a 301 redirect and change an old URL to a new one, you're letting search engines (like Google) know that you want to forget the ranking of the old page and move it completely to the new one.

This means you can use 301 redirects to improve your website's ranking.

If you have a page with an outdated URL and there are other sites that refer to that specific page on your site (this is called a backlink), using a 301 redirect will allow you to continue with the user flow without having to notify the site owner that provide backlink.

This happens because once you've done the redirects in your Site Manager, users will access the old link, but will be redirected to the new link.

If you have directories that specialize in a certain type of module, let's say Events. You can redirect the pages of the other modules that you are not using to the pages that are important to your site, that is, in this case, the pages related to Events .

Another example, in an Article related directory, you can on a certain landing page direct users to posts that have been successful in the past, and then present them with othe related posts.

The use of the 301 redirect feature is up to your imagination and your analysis of the relevance of the contents of your Site.

Remember to always make redirects concise and meaningful within the user experience.
