So 301 is basically when someone visits the site by using an old link to the page that has moved, a 301 redirect will automatically take the user to the new page. In this way, the user does not see a 404 ‘page not found’ error. This provides a better user experience.
There are a number of redirection plugins available both Free & Pro Versions. Now below is the method of Installing the redirection plugin :
Log into WordPress Dashboard. Navigate to Plugins > Add New.
Type Redirection into the search bar. Click Install > Activate.
Now to create the 301 redirects in the WordPress Redirection Plugin check the below-mentioned steps :
1. Navigate to Tools > Redirection.
2. In the “Add new redirection section”, enter the old URL you want to redirect in the Source URL field.
3. Enter the new URL you want to redirect to in the Target URL field.
4. For Group, click the drop-down menu and choose a group. In our tests, we selected Redirections.
5. Click Add Redirect to save the 301 redirects.
