Are 301 Redirects Permanent


#1

Hi

I’m currently going through broken links on our website and doing 301 redirects. Some of these links are products that are out of stock and have been turned off in PAM. What I’m wondering is if I do a redirect on one of these links and this item is later turned on in PAM will the link be restored to before the redirect or will the link keep redirecting even though it no longer needs to.

Thanks

HI David,

The 301 are permanent. They should not be used for products that are out of the stock but for products that have been discontinued. The redirect will not be removed when the product is back in stock, it will be confusing for the ‘Search Engines’

You can learn the basics of 301 Redirects here and in this google video

Best regards,
