SEO stands for search engine optimization. Redirects are a way to forward users (and bots) to a URL other than the one they requested.
There are two reasons why you should use redirects when moving content:
- Better user experience for visitors – You don’t want visitors to get hit with a “page not found” warning when they’re trying to access a page that’s moved. Redirects solve this problem by seamlessly sending visitors to the content’s new location.
- Help search engines understand your site – Redirects tell search engines where content has moved and whether the move is permanent or temporary. This affects if and how the pages appear in their search results.
The main task of this module is to create and manage redirects on your website to redirect the customer to the needed page if for some reason it is no longer available at the old URL address and make the website more visible for the search engines.
How it works?
The functionalities of this module allow you to create a redirect very easily. All you need to do is to choose an old URL and then assign a new one for redirection selecting the required code and status. Also you can view old and new URLs in a browser and can check HTTP status for them.
The module tools allow editing
URLs, as well as importing
them using a CSV file.
This module is used in the backend only and its settings can be found under Modules and Extensions tabs.
