If you have deleted some of your content after it has been indexed you will be sitting with broken links which can affect your website ranking and you could be losing readers too. You may also have contact that is outdated and you want to send your readers to your new content instead of having them arrive on the old content.

The solution is to create redirects, this video shows you how to create redirects using the Redirection plugin.

Hi Lynne!
Thanks for this training, very useful as always.

Please I would like to know if this redirect works only when you want to delete a post?

If not, how exactly can I use this if I want to modify my a post permalink?
For example, if I want to change capital letterings to small ones or delete some but not the whole tittle?

Yes you would use this for that too! So make a copy of the old link before you change it and then go into redirect and make a redirect from the old link to the new link.

Just added a gold star to your post so I can find it again. It's a problem I haven't had yet, but it is nice to know where to find information if I do encounter it. Thanks much!

Hey Lynne,

I've been using Pretty Links to do this, but it is good to know there are other plugins available to be used. Great training!

Hey Trish

Pretty links is a link cloaker and shortener so it actually does a completely different thing.
