Redirects

When you “redirect” a path, you’re sending both web users and search engines from the path they requested to an alternate path. For example, if you’ve created a page in the past (Link A) and you’ve created a new page to replace it (Link B), you can use a redirect to send web users and search engines to the new page that you’ve created, from Link A to Link B.

The redirects available for LawLytics pages are considered “301,” or “Permanent” redirects. These redirects inform search engines that Link A no longer exists and Link B should take its place.

To create a redirect, navigate to the “Redirects” menu, which is a slide-out menu located underneath the slide-out “Advanced SEO” menu. From here, you can add any number of redirects.

The page that you add these redirects to acts as a magnet and draws in all of the redirects you added.

For example, if you have a page /path-b.html, and then you added /path-c.html as a redirect to /path-b.html, then whenever someone went to /path-c.html they would wind up at /path-b.html.

Basically, you’re pulling in links to the page you are adding the redirects to, rather than redirecting the page you’re currently editing to a different page.

Note: Redirects only function with the path only. This means that you should include only the actual path of the page, not the domain.
I.e. if your page can be found at www.domain.com/a-path, then the path is  /a-path. Use only the path itself in redirects, otherwise, they will not function properly.
