What is 301 Redirect

Put simply, a 301 Redirect is a configuration made on your web server which will take your site visitors of a old page to the new page.


For example, when I started this blog with blogspot, the blog's URL is www.pinfoltd.blogspot.com, but when I bought a new .com domain, and configure my blog to use www.pinfoltd.com as my blog's URL instead of www.pinfoltd.blogspot.com, I told blogspot to redirect visitors to www.pinfoltd.blospot.com to www.pinfoltd.com
So for blogspot to be able to do the redirecting, they have to create a 301 Redirect configuration on the server that is hosting my blog, so that I will not loose any visitors.

A 301 Redirect does more than just redirect you visitors from the old page to the new ones, it also notify search engines that a page have been permanently move, so they should drop the old one and index the new one.
