Goal: To properly implement and test 301 redirects on your WordPress website.
Ideal Outcome: The page you want to redirect no longer displays a 404 error or the old content and is now redirecting users and search engines to the new URL.
Prerequisites or requirements: This exact process only applies to WordPress.org sites.
Why this is important: Having users or search engines experience either 404 (Page Not Found) errors or outdated content should be avoided as much as possible.
Where this is done: In your WordPress Admin panel. When this is done: Whenever unexpected 404 (Page Not Found) errors are detected, or you want to automatically and permanently redirect users from an URL to another.
