Types of redirect

There are two different types of redirect:

301 Permanent

The 301 redirect indicates a permanent change. Search engines will recognise the redirect and re-index the site.

302 Temporary

The 302 redirect is temporary which means that the old, or original page, stays indexed with search engines. A 302 redirect should not be a permanent solution because both pages continue to be indexed, affecting search rankings between the old and new pages.
