Set Up Your 301 Redirects
Set up a redirect plan once you have decided which keywords, pages and inbound links determine the state of your current ranking.
301 redirects have many uses if your URLs are affected by your redesign, including moving sections of an old website without changing the page names or removing old pages for new ones.
Removal of blogs, help or subdomains can be implemented by 301 redirects while keeping all the components hosted in them under a different section of your website.
The staging phase of your website is the optimum time to set up your 301 redirects. When deleting pages you can avoid miss redirecting any due to the ability review first. Crawling will highlight these pages. By exporting scan data you can ensure that your live site will be working as intended.
