    Does 302 status code hurt SEO?


    We have redirected our web page from HTTP to HTTPS but when I crawled my site with screaming frog it's showing status 302.

    I read on seo-hacker.com that 302 redirects don't pass link juice to your website and it hurt your SEO.

    So is it true?

    This is my file.

    Have I made any mistake in the code?

    plz help.

    You need to be doing a 301 redirect. 301 = moved permanently, 302 = moved temporarily.

    302s are considered not to work as it is only temporary so your response code to the redirect really needs to be a 301.
