301 Redirects and SEO 301
Redirects301 redirects pass 90-99 percent of link juice (ranking power) to the redirected page because they are permanent redirects (not temporary for maintenance, etc.).
There are several reasons why you might need to redirect one domain to another. Maybe you redesigned your website and got a new domain. Perhaps you have unused domains for your brand that you'd like to begin using.
Regardless, if you are concerned about preserving the SEO value of the original domain, the 301 redirect is usually the best method for implementing redirects on a website.
How Do 301 Redirects in .htaccess Work?
When you redirect an old domain to a new one, something needs to tell your old site's web server to redirect traffic to a different location. One method is to use a simple text file with the extension .htaccess. (There is no file name; only an extension.)
Please keep in mind that this .htaccess redirection method only works on Linux servers that have the Apache Mod-Rewrite module enabled.
The .htaccess file will then direct users or search engines to the correct location when they visit your website.
Because the redirect is permanent, search engines will eventually replace the old domain with the new domain.
How to Create 301 Redirects with .htaccess
Step 1: Create or Download a New .htaccess File
Wait! Perhaps you already have an .htaccess file! Because.htaccess files are a simple way for your web server to communicate with you, they are used for much more than just 301 redirects.
Many website and content management tools, such as WordPress, rely on .htaccess to function.
We recommend that you check to see if your site already has an .htaccess file before creating a new one.
If you have one, that's fantastic! Download the existing file, add the domain redirect tool's snippet of code, save it, and upload it to your site.
If you don't have one, make one in a text editor and save it as.htaccess (No file name, just the extension.)
Step 2: Create a 301 redirect code.
To generate the code for your redirect, use our .htaccess 301 Redirect Tool, then copy and paste it into your .htaccess file.
Step 3: Put Your .htaccess File Online
NOTE: If you already had an .htaccess file, save it to a backup directory...
Simply in case.
.htaccess files have an impact on the directory in which they are located as well as any subdirectories within that directory. To redirect an entire site, place your .htaccess file in the main web directory for your site. (This is usually the same directory as your index file/home page.)
