How to create redirects

A redirect is a way to send both users and search engines to a different URL from the one they originally requested.

Redirects help you forward visitors automatically from an Original URL (the source) to the New URL (the destination). Typically, this is used when an old or broken page is not accessible and the content has moved to a different URL or has been deleted. To redirect visitors to your site’s homepage, just use / (forward slash) as New URL.

Pixpa does support 301 redirect which is a permanent redirect which passes between 90-99% of link juice (ranking power) to the redirected page. In most instances, the 301 redirect is the best method for implementing redirects on a website.


To create a redirect, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings page and select the Redirects option.
  2. Click on Create a Redirect button.
  3. Enter your Original URL & New URL path.

    Example: Let’s suppose your original URL is https://www.abc.com/examples and new URL is https://www.abc.com/galleries, so add abc.com/examples in original URL and /galleries in new URL.

  4. After adding URL paths, Click on the Save button.

Note: Forward slash / is mandatory before your original URL and new URL path.

If you want to redirect to your home page, enter / as the Redirects To option.


 

Note: You cannot redirect certain paths because they are reserved for the system as /store or /private or /cart or /site etc.


To delete a redirect, please follow steps:
