    Does redirection affects SEO?


    I have a blog powered by wordpress, and I want to post categories to the main menu, as pages.

    I thought about using a redirection plugin, like Redirection; you can find it on wordpress.org (sorry, not allowed to post links). This way, I though about creating pages with the same names as the categories, and do a redirection from each page to the category it represents.

    Will this affect the SEO optimization or how google "sees" me?
    Thanks!

    Why not just create the pages and put them in your nav?
    Maybe I'm not following here, but I don't see why a redirect is necessary at all.

    I want that categories to show in the main nav as pages do. That's why I want some pages to redirect to categories.
