SEO Redirection Plugin I’m not a coder so this question may be dumb, but if I use Static HTML Output to convert our WP sites to static, would all of the redirects set up with our re-direct plugins remain in place? I’m thinking “no” because they don’t edits htaccess but rather handle that redirect through WP if I understand correctly. Any advice? Thank you :)
Great question, thanks for asking!
You’re spot on - those .htaccess redirects won’t be deployed to your static site automatically.
The current solution will depend on your deployment method:
.htaccessfile, you may be able to copy your existing
.htaccessfile, adjusting the URL patterns as required
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://example.com/" />(you may also want to include a canonical link tag just to be sure of no duplicate content indexing).
Redirects are an important part of sites for SEO and user experience, so we’ll try to come up with a more seamless experience in the future. Some discussions have been had with users about this and we’ve got some ideas in mind.
