Creating a 301 Page/URL redirect with Carrot is easy, and can be done on an individual page/post basis in the “Carrot SEO” Advanced Options:
To create a 301 Redirect, simply:
- Edit the page/post you want to redirect, or create a new page at the URL you want redirected
- Scroll down to the “Carrot SEO” box, and select the “Advanced” tab.
- Specify a complete and valid URL (on your website or on any other website) as shown in the screenshot above.
- Scroll to the top and “Update” the page to save your changes
Optionally, you can change the page’s title to note that it has been redirected and is not directly accessible. e.g “REDIRECTED – Old Page Title” or “Redirect to Offsite Page”
Now when anyone arrives to the address of that page, their browser will be redirected to the new URL instead of viewing the page.
