301 and 302 redirects

Hi Megan,

Firstly welcome to the site we hope you get some benefit from visiting.

The major difference between 301 and 302 redirects is permanent vs temporary situations.

When a page is removed from your site, you would use a 301 redirect to PERMANENTLY redirect your visitors somewhere else and avoid them getting a page not found error.

When you want to just TEMPORARILY redirect your visitors to an alternate page, you would use a 302 redirect. This is often used on shopping sites for out of stock items.

Hope that clears it up for you.

Enjoy the site.
