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?


HTTP Header Analysis
HTTP header reponses show how example.com responds to incoming Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) requests from connecting clients (e.g. web browsers).

Hi Miste206,
Not bad - though you may want to change it if you think it isn't right. A link is below for more reading on status types.

An Apache Redirect Directive in .htaccess or one of the httpd configuration files can be set by the site administrator to indicate whether a redirect is permanent or temporary.

You can find more reading at: [httpd.apache.org...] Redirect Directive.

examples they show in the section are:
Redirect permanent /one http://example.com/two
Redirect 303 /three http://example.com/other

The permanent and 303 in the directive are the status attribute of the directive (303 is status seeother)

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.
