How do I create a redirect in Website Builder?

This article will explain how you can add a redirect in Website Builder.

Redirects can be used to prevent your site visitors from accessing a dead link to your page by directing them to the live site. This will also help improve your position on search engines like Google, as having dead links on your site can undermine your overall ranking.

Since this feature is available for multiple versions of our Website Builder tool, select your version from the list below and follow the instructions provided to get started.
