A 301 redirect is a status code that tells search engines and users the page has permanently moved, and makes sure that they are sent to the correct page. As this is permanent, when a 301 redirect is used it signifies that the content on the page has been moved forever. Users are redirected to a new page, which has replaced the old one.

 A 302 redirect is a temporary change that redirects both users and search engines to the desired new location for a limited amount of time, until the redirect is removed. This 302 redirect may be shown as a 302 found (HTTP 1.1), or moved temporarily (HTTP 1.0).

301 Redirect is basically used to redirect the one URL to another URL. for example if you have a website named www.abc.com and you want to change a website to www.xyz .com so you just tell Google to redirect all the traffic to my new website by implementing 301 Redirect.

302 Redirect is basically used to redirect the URL for a particular period of time . in this situation we do not redirect the URL permanently but only for some period of time.

Hello,

A 301 redirect indicates the permanent moving of a web page from one location to another.

The 301 part refers to the HTTP status code of the redirected page.In simple terms, a 301 redirect tells the browser: “This page has moved permanently. This is the new location and we don’t intend on moving it back.” To which the browser responds: “Sure thing! I’ll send the user there right now!”

A 302 redirect is a name for an HTTP status code that involves the number 302. With this code, the browser is redirected from one URL to another. A 302 redirect is often simply called a temporary redirect, unlike a 301 redirect, which is based on a different HTTP status code and is characterized as a permanent redirect.

A 301, or permanently moved, is a redirect that carries and distributes in an absolute manner. You should use a 301 to signify to the crawlers that your content has moved permanently – as in forever.

A 302 status code means Found, or more commonly referred to as “temporarily moved.” This redirect doesn’t carry or pass the link value to the new location. What it does do is get the user to an appropriate location for you so that you aren’t showing them a broken link, a 404 page not found, or an error page.

A 301 redirect means that the page has permanently moved to a new location. A 302 redirect means that the move is only temporary. Search engines need to figure out whether to keep the old page, or replace it with the one found at the new location
