Redirection is used to forward a request for a particular URL to another destination. The redirect feature is mostly used when content is deprecated. Thus you want to drive your traffic for that specific content to new content.
Redirection in WordPress refers to the process of redirecting users from one URL to another. It is useful when you want to change the URL of a post or page and don’t want to lose any traffic or SEO value associated with the original URL.
Redirection can also be used to redirect users to a new URL if the original URL is no longer available or has been removed.
In WordPress, there are many plugins available that can help you manage and set up redirects, such as the Redirection plugin. Additionally, you can also set up redirects using the .htaccess file or by using server-side redirection techniques.
