I recently ran an analysis on my site <snip> and came up with this for my HTTP Header Analysis. What concerned me was line 5
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Is this bad? What does this mean?

Sorry - I should have ben thinking of other possibilities. The redirect status can be applied in other places such as mod-rewrite in the flags: redirect|R[=code]Forces an external redirect, optionally with the specified HTTP status code.
The main thing is that it is something that someone set and not normally something that is of concern.
