Google redirects to another Google Page

If you need to change the page URL in search engine results, we recommend to use a 301 redirect. This is to ensure that users and search engines are directed to the correct page. The 301 status code indicates that a page has permanently moved to a new location.

301 redirects are useful in the following situations:

  • You move your site to a new domain, and you want to make the transition as seamless as possible.
  • People access your site through multiple different URLs. Let’s say if users can reach your home page in multiple ways. For instance, http://example.com/home, or http://www.example.com, it’s a great idea to pick one of those URLs as your preferred (canonical) URL. 301 redirects allows you to send traffic from the original URLs to your preferred URL.
  • You’re combining two websites and you want to make sure you redirect the outdated URLs to the correct pages.

To implement a 301 redirect for websites that are hosted on servers running Apache, you need to access your server’s .htaccess file. If you host your site on a server running other software, kindly check with your provider for more information.
