301 Redirection is the only redirection method that is SEO friendly and avoids all the consequences of redirection like: loss of traffic, fluctuation in the page rank and your web page placement. 301 page redirection is the symbol of moved permanently and the core motive of using this redirection method is to lead the search engines and your visitors to another page rather than simply giving them the “404 Page not Found” Error which is a hopeless result for your traffic and such error is surely going to kill your ranking.

But, in this post I will be mentioning about .htaccess files for redirection of your webpage.

ü Place the following code in the note pad or in the .htaccess file and save it.

ü Now upload your file to the root folder of your server and simply perform the trial by typing the old address.

ü Please do not add “http://www” in the above statement but place the path from the top level of your website to the page.
