Everything You Need to Know about 301 vs. 302 Redirects for SEO
The website redirects are useful when you are relocating your website content permanently or temporarily. Ahrefs contributor Joshua Hardwick has published an article on using 301 vs. 302 Redirects for SEO.
He says, “Redirects are simple. If you’re moving content to a new location permanently, use a 301 redirect. If you’re moving it temporarily, use a 302 redirect.
But you might be wondering, why does this even matter? After all, users can’t tell the difference between 301s and 302s. Both are identical in their functionality.
The answer is simple: Search engines view 301 redirects and 302 redirects differently. And choosing the wrong one can cause SEO issues that often go unnoticed for months or even years”.
