Redirect root of the website to subpage


#1

I’d like to redirect the root of the website to a sub page, e.g. example.com to redirect to example.com/product.

The intuitive way would be to set the old path setting to / but that’s not accepted. Any ideas?


#2

Why not using meta refresh with a static URL?

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL='your_url/'" />


#3

I’m not sure search engines handle that as well as a server-side configuration. I’ve read mixed information on that.


#4

With 301 redirects using full URLs?

No, using Meta Refresh: https://moz.com/learn/seo/redirection

Meta refreshes do pass some link equity, but are not recommended as an SEO tactic due to poor usability and the loss of link equity passed.
