Redirect one page to another


(Brooke) #1

i have a duplicate content issue with google so i’d like to forward the traffic from one page to the similar one… is there a way to do that? it would be pages within the same site. or better to just delete the first one? i’m just afraid that will cause an error message if that page is ranking and decrease my quality score as a result

you can do this in your .htaccess file on your web server…

Put something like this in your .htacess file:
Redirect 301 /oldpage.html http://www.yoursite.com/newpage.html

Note that this is NOT done in RapidWeaver. .htaccess It is on your web server. You need to see “invisible” files to see it.

Hello again @bls,
Next to @1611mac’s solution you can also use one of several stacks to achieve this. Look here for some of them; http://rapidweaver.marathia.com/stacks/
(Because of some strange errors i cannot load the page completely, may be because of my Chinese phone ¯_(ツ)_/¯ )

Happy weaving,
