Redirection
redirects to new site, but with 200 instead of 301 (5 posts)

    When I check to see that it is working, it indeed does redirect to the new site. However, when I check online services to see if it is recognized as an search engine friendly 301 it comes back as a 200.

    What is going on? Is there something I need to do?

    Do you have an example URL?

    Same here, all the redirected links return 200. Example: http://www.caninejournal.com/custom-dog-collars-and-leashes/

    Alex, your URL returns a 301. Once the redirection has taken place it then returns a 200 for the redirected page.

    Ah I see, most of the URL checkers I was using returned a 200, but this one shows the 301: http://tools.seobook.com/server-header-checker/

    Thanks for the quick reply John and for a great plugin.
