The SEO view in Store Commander's interface includes a couple of fields named redirect_type & id_product_redirected.
Note that these fields are also available for CSV import.
These fields are used to indicate what to do when a visitor is on a product page that is no longer available (disabled).
If redirect_type is not populated or set to 404: the visitor will see a common error page for all errors.
If redirect_type is set to 301 or 302 and the id_product_redirected field is populated: the visitor will be redirected to this new product page.
Difference between 301 and 302:
- 302 informs search engines that this is a temporary modification ; they will not update their index.
- 301 is a permanent redirection and the page will no longer be indexed in search engines. Visitors will no longer find this page in Google.
