[Resolved] 307 (Temporary) or 301 (Permanent) redirect?

    Status 301 means that the resource (page) is moved permanently to a new location. The client/browser should not attempt to request the original location but use the new location from now on.

    Status 307 (or 302) means that the resource is temporarily located somewhere else, and the client/browser should continue requesting the original url.

    I have also been confused by the difference between the temporary and permanent options, and I still am.

    If I select temporary for a URL redirection, does that mean that it will expire and stop working?

    If I select permanent, does that mean that I will be unable to change the target URL at some time in the future?

    I’m very confused about it too… What is better? Can you tell a example about the 301 and 307 doing pretty links?
