CMS Page Rewrites

Before you begin, make sure that you understand exactly what the redirectA method used to alert browsers and search engines that a page has been moved. 301 Redirect: Permanent change 302 Redirect: Temporary change is to accomplish. Think in terms of "target" and "source," or "redirect to" and "redirect from." Although people might still navigate to the former page from search engines or outdated links, the redirect causes your store to switch to the new target.
