The safest way of forwarding from the point of view of indexing on the major search engines, it redirects (using a 301 error. This will retain the settings of PR and TIC of each page, and new and old addresses will be combined together. To implement it in the root of the website locate the file .htaccess and insert the following lines
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule (.*) “your new address”/$1 [R=301,L]
Now your visitors will be redirected to the new site with the address “your new address”.
You can implement redirectsusing Redirect 301 /older_page.html “the address of the new page, however, this method is not very convenient, especially when your website contains a large number of pages, since each of them you will have to write the command separately. With the same success you can use RedirectPermanent /”old address” “new address”, which implements the same function.
You can perform the redirect using the script. To do this, in the title page insert the line:
HTTP/1.2 301 Moved Permanenty
Location: http://”address of a new page”
For static sites, for example located on free hosting, you can implement the redirect using HTML tags. To do this, use the tag
where new_site.html address of the new site, which will be implemented call forwarding page, content=6 – the time delay before the browser window new page will be loaded. Set this parameter equal to zero, and you will make the forwarding instant, as a result, the visitor will not notice that was sent to your new address.
