    Arrow Do You Lose Links with a 301 Redirect


    Hello,
    If I have a page that has several good links to it and I redirect that page to a better page, will that link juice get transferred to the new page? Will I lose any of the link love?
    Thanks

    With a 301 redirect the link juice should be passed on, providing that the content on the original page is relevant to the new page.

    A 301 is a server-side script - any query for the old page gets the new one automatically... as such whatever the old page had the new one gets because the search engine can't tell there used to be an old page... it only know the new one exists.
