Welcome to “Did You Know”
A little section of my blog for those looking to improve their knowledge of websites.
301 redirect – A permanent redirect from one URL to another, usually from an old website to a new website. 301 redirects are also used to redirect traffic from old web pages to the new pages that have taken their place. (e.g. “website.com/about” is now “website.com/our-company” on the new website.
404 – A page a user sees when they try to reach a non-existent page on your website. Usually, this is due to someone reaching a page that has been deleted or they have mistyped the URL. An effective 404 error page should communicate why the page doesn’t exist and what users can do next.
