Redirecting a website's page allows website owners to direct visitors to a different website or page without manual URL entry. This can be used during website maintenance or when content has moved to a new location.
There are several methods to redirect your website visitors, including the easiest one, meta refresh in HTML. However, this and other client-side redirects are not recommended for SEO as search engines may see them as a soft 404 error. For permanent redirects, use server-side 301 or 302 redirects.
To start you need to add the appropriate http-equiv attribute to implement the meta refresh method in the HTML code's head section. You can then specify the interval for the refresh and the redirect URL.
How to redirect a page to another website using meta refresh:
- Edit the head section of the page using a text editor or CMS editor.
- Save the file.
- Test the redirect by opening and refreshing the edited page.
