How to create a 301 Redirect (from http://www.webconfs.com/how-to-redirect-a-webpage.php)

301 Redirect

301 redirect is the most efficient and Search Engine Friendly method for webpage redirection. It’s not that hard to implement and it should preserve your search engine rankings for that particular page. If you have to change file names or move pages around, it’s the safest option. The code “301” is interpreted as “moved permanently”.

You can Test your redirection with Search Engine Friendly Redirect Checker

Below are a Couple of methods to implement URL Redirection via code and htaccess redirect

 

IIS Redirect

  • In internet services manager, right click on the file or folder you wish to redirect
  • Select the radio titled “a redirection to a URL”.
  • Enter the redirection page
  • Check “The exact url entered above” and the “A permanent redirection for this resource”
  • Click on ‘Apply’

ColdFusion Redirect

<.cfheader statuscode=”301″ statustext=”Moved permanently”>
<.cfheader name=”Location” value=”http://www.new-url.com”> 

PHP Redirect

<?
Header( “HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently” ); 
Header( “Location: http://www.new-url.com&#8221; ); 
?> 

ASP Redirect

<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<%
Response.Status=”301 Moved Permanently”
Response.AddHeader “Location”,”http://www.new-url.com/&#8221;
%> 

ASP .NET Redirect

<script runat=”server”>
private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
Response.Status = “301 Moved Permanently”;
Response.AddHeader(“Location”,”http://www.new-url.com&#8221;);
}
</script> 

JSP (Java) Redirect

<%
response.setStatus(301);
response.setHeader( “Location”, “http://www.new-url.com/&#8221; );
response.setHeader( “Connection”, “close” );
%> 

CGI PERL Redirect

$q = new CGI;
print $q->redirect(“http://www.new-url.com/&#8221;); 

Ruby on Rails Redirect

def old_action
headers[“Status”] = “301 Moved Permanently”
redirect_to “http://www.new-url.com/&#8221;
end 

Redirect Old domain to New domain using htaccess redirect

Create a .htaccess file with the below code, it will ensure that all your directories and pages of your old domain will get correctly redirected to your new domain.
The .htaccess file needs to be placed in the root directory of your old website (i.e the same directory where your index file is placed)

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.newdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Please REPLACE http://www.newdomain.com in the above code with your actual domain name.

In addition to the redirect I would suggest that you contact every backlinking site to modify their backlink to point to your new website.

Note* This .htaccess method of redirection works ONLY on Linux servers having the Apache Mod-Rewrite moduled enabled.

 

Redirect to www using htaccess redirect

Create a .htaccess file with the below code, it will ensure that all requests coming in to domain.com will get redirected to http://www.domain.com 
The .htaccess file needs to be placed in the root directory of your old website (i.e the same directory where your index file is placed)

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine on
rewritecond %{http_host} ^domain.com [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [r=301,nc]

Please REPLACE domain.com and http://www.newdomain.com with your actual domain name.

Note* This .htaccess method of redirection works ONLY on Linux servers having the Apache Mod-Rewrite moduled enabled.

 

How to Redirect HTML

Please refer to section titled ‘How to Redirect with htaccess’, if your site is hosted on a Linux Server and ‘IIS Redirect’, if your site is hosted on a Windows Server.

New discovery November 2012

I’ve been using this blog for almost a year now, and mainly its served as a repository for cool links and ideas as I’ve developed my basic web developing skills. 

Like these few links I found very informative but not very useful when you aren’t benefiting from the bewildering whirlwind of micro-thoughts and streaming-consciousness that would give these links context. 

 

Like so, I like this: http://wiseheartdesign.com/articles/2010/11/12/the-designers-guide-to-the-osx-command-prompt/

 and this:https://rvm.io/

…oooo and this:http://compass-style.org/

Simply put, I’ve discovered that although this repository here has been helpful for my personal use, it serves no real purpose to the public. 

So instead of being greedy I decided I might start taking this more public and make future postings a bit more readable and helpful!

Thanks,

Dean
