Do you have broken website URLs? Is it costing you to let your traffic land on dead pages? If YES, we have good news for you.
We recently revamped and migrated a website to a WordPress CMS. The website had several pages crawling in organic search. The guys have worked really hard to get the pages listed in the organic search. We did not want their efforts to go in Vain.
As a web development company, we could have redirected it by modifying .htaccess file, but we wanted to keep it easy for the client to manage in future. So as always we started searching for a plug-in library on WordPress. After going through a whole lot of plug-in’s, we got hold of this amazing plug-in called “Redirection”, as simple as it sounds. Download it from http://wordpress.org/plugins/redirection/
Once downloaded, Install it, go to settings and create the Source and Targeted URL with Type: Simple Redirection and 301 Method. Source URL is the broken URL from Google and the targeted URL is the URL you want your user redirected to. Aint it really easy? Hope this post saves your time!
