Jimdo UrlUrl Jimdo
There are several different ways to use a URLedirect, but it is important that everything is done properly and in measure. Redirections with misspellings or other mistakes can corrupt your website. Please note: The URL Redirection function is only available to JimdoBusiness clients. URL Remedirects allows you to re-direct an existent or commercial URL to an existent destination URL on your website.
This is the most commonly used function when a page on your site already has a good rank, but for some reasons you will need to modify its URL. To get your well deserved rankings, you can redirect the old URL to the new URL of the page on your site.
An URL-reedirect ( 301 Refirect ) informs searching machines that the URL has been changed to a permanent one, so that instead the visitor is redirected to the new URL. In order to begin building URL redirections, login to your Jimdo website and complete these steps: Enter the menu and browse to Menu > Preferences > URL Redirections.
Insert the URL of the original URL in the box Edit this URL...... If you enter the URL you want to reroute, do not enter your domainname (yourwebsite.com) - just the URL that comes after it, plus the first forward bias (/). Your URL can be an old, existent URL, or it can be a new, invented URL that you want to use for advertising needs (sometimes known as a "vanity URL").
Your landing URL or landing page must be a genuine page that has already been generated on your Jimdo website. Instead, when you configure the Refirect, the resulting URL redirects your visitors to the landing page. Whether the URL is existent or compiled for advertising use, it must originate from a specific domain associated with your Jimdo site.
Please note: Up to 200 URL Redirections can be added by businesses and Platinum members. redirections are high performance, so please be cautious. Entering an enabled navigational hyperlink in the input URL box can result in a re-direct cycle. To avoid this, please use only idle sources. A URL-reedirect is useful many a time.
So if you already have an exisiting site with another vendor and you want to move your site to Jimdo, you will need to redirect your URL if the old page redirect does not correspond to the new Jimdo page redirect. This ensures that you maintain the rankings for your old web sites and that there are no broken hyperlinks from your old web site.
You do not need to redirect if the old site has the same URL as your new site. Redirections are especially crucial when you are restructuring your website. Every page on your old site that no longer appears on your new site should be diverted to a page on your new site (perhaps your home page) to prevent broken link.
They can even begin building diversions before you move or link your domains to Jimdo. If, for example, you have an on-line bicycle store and have a sales instead of rebranding your store page or splitting a long URL (e.g. http://awesomebikes. com/products/beach-cruisers/sale), you can generate a brief customized URL for your sales page (http://awesomebikes. com/spring-sale) and forward it to your current sales page.
Brief web addresses also make it easy to include advertising hypertext addresses in printed material. Use URL redirections to point the wrong URL to the right URL on your Web site and thus prevent the 404 page from appearing. Prevent the adverse effect (and adverse experience ) of 404 mistakes on your site by re-directing them to your site's pages.
