302 Redirect

Last Updated: February 20th, 2024
What is a 302 Redirect? A 302 Redirect is a temporary redirection technique for webpages. It indicates a temporary move of content, used for situations like A/B testing or when a page is under maintenance. Unlike a 301 redirect, it does not pass on link equity. It's crucial to use it correctly to avoid SEO dilution, ensuring the original page retains its ranking once the temporary need ends. Using 302 Redirects Without Hurting Your SEO: Use 302 redirects sparingly and only for short-term changes. Monitor the impact on your site's SEO closely and revert to the original URL as soon as the temporary need is resolved to maintain your site's search engine ranking and user experience.
