Permanent Redirector Wordpress Plugin

Overview

This plugin allows you to redirect (permanent redirect using HTTP status 301) any of your posts or pages to a different URL.
This enables you to transfer Google rank of your post or page (static page of WordPress) to a new page. Also the new page is displayed in search (Yahoo, Google, MSN etc.) results.This is valuable when you want to permanently move one or more of your posts or pages to a new location. The post/page content is not altered.No configuration is required. Even your GrandMother can use it.

Compatibility

Works on 1.5.x & 2.0 codebase.

Update

For some users the plugin wasn’t directly redirecting but bringing up an intermediate page. Brian found a solution to this issue. The plugin has been updated with Brian’s fix. If you are facing this problem then you are strongly encouraged to download the new version. Otherwise you may continue with your existing version.

How it works

When a post or static page (in WP context) is fetched (using its permalink) for viewing the plugin checks if the post has a “redirect” custom field set. If it is set then a permanent redirect status is sent to the client/browser indicating that the post has permanently moved to the location (URL) specified in the value of “redirect”. So the viewer is automatically moved to the new location.

How to use

In short to use this (after you have installed and activated the plugin) add a custom field to the post (which you want to redirect) with key redirect and in value give the full URL where you want to redirect to.

It doesn't alter the view in archive, category or home page view.

This plugin is usable only in version of WordPress which supports custom fields for posts. Definitely for WordPress 1.5 and above.

Inspiration

Similar plugin from Red-Alt inspired us to write this.

The problem with RedAlt’s plugin is that it did a temporary redirect which does not transfer Google rank. Also temporary redirect doesn’t drive the engine traffic to the new url. In short bad SERP. And it used wp_redirect which is one mess of a function IMHO.

We solved this by using Permanent Redirection (301).
