Permanently redirecting old URL to new URL is called 301 redirect. By creating a redirect, you can tell visitors and search engines that your site URL or blog post URL has been redirected. So when a visitor clicks on your old URL, it will be automatically redirected to the new URL.

301 redirection is ideal for the following scenarios:

1. The product is no longer available, thus the consumer will be sent to a similar-type website.

2. When you want to adjust the URL structure after changing the domain name.

Why 301 Redirect is necessary after changing URL?

When you permanently move your website URL or page, 301 redirects are set to redirect the visitor to the new URL and if you do not do this, the visitor has to face 404 not found error on your site.

This not only affects the user experience but also hurts your website SEO. Therefore it is very important to create 301 redirect.

By 301 redirect, you tell visitors and search engines that your site URL or blog post URL has been redirected to the new URL forever.
