    301 redirection is permanent redirection which we basically implement when one of our site or web page has permanently moved to some other location. It help us to retain the exiting traffic that is coming to the old web page or website.

    301 redirect is a permanent redirection of a old page to new page and it's useful in SEO. Because when you do 301 redirect than all your SEO value passes to new page. If you do 302 redirect than it's consider as temporary redirect and the crawler doesn't give much value to both the pages

    301 redirects are used move permanently a site to new location. Search engine do not apply any penalties to 301 redirects the way they apply them to many other types of redirects.

    301 redirect is the most efficient and Search Engine Friendly method for webpage redirection. It's not that hard to implement and it should preserve your search engine rankings for that particular page. If you have to change file names or move pages around, it's the safest option. The code "301" is interpreted as "moved permanently.

    WHAT?
    Its not a "form of url" Geez.


    Ok..
    Want the correct answer?

    Webservers reply with "ReplyCodes"
    See http://www.ecsnow.com/library/s/servercode.asp for a full list.

    Normally when you visit a website your browser/computer will get a code 200 ( Everythings ok and available for transfer )

    Now, ANY CODE OVER 300 and BELOW 400 is a "redirect" code.
    These redirects tell a browser that the page it requested doesn't exist anymore ( or ever ) and that the server will now say where the page is. "Please follow me" message.

    A 301 code says "Page has MOVED PERMANENTLY"
    This is all it does!

    Now.
    You and your software can take this message any way you want.

    Search engines "tend" to notice this and then mark the reffering page link as "bad" and then updates its own index pointing the old page to the new page.
    In MOST cases, the previous pages PR and Keywords migrate across. However this doesnt last long as its soon gobbled up by the current pages PR.

    Just because the old page was worth visiting doesnt mean the new one is just because you said so with a 301

    Its not a type of URL
    Its not a special google / search engine telling message
    Its NOT A SEO FRIENDLY VERSION OF A PERM REDIRECT!!!! -- it IS!!! the only Permanently redirected code!

    Please USE IT FOR WHAT ITS MEANT TO BE USED FOR!

    And that is to say...
    "Hey, What your looking for has moved. Here is the new location for it."

    For e.g You had a website whose name was www.ABCD.com but now you change that website and give new name www.XYZ.com then you have to implement a 301 redirect from old website to new website.Now whoever type your old website url it will automatically appear your new URL
