Welcome to Webmaster World :)

Try a search, I'm certain you'll find what you are looking for.

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="3; url=http://www.#.com">

"3" is how many seconds till the page redirects

If you're using ASP you can do the following:

response.buffer = true

NextPage = "http://..."
response.redirect NextPage

However, you do not have control over the time element. It redirects immediately.

Some search engines will not index the referring page, just the destination. Other SEs may interpret a meta refresh as SPAM. Placing your redirect code in an external file will avoid both.

Create a .txt file with this:


Rename it as a JS file, example: redirect.js

Then in the HEAD section of the redirecting page, add:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/redirect.js"></script>

Note: Also redirects immediately.

Server side is the best way to go unless you are OK with a link on the page for SEs and nonjavascript users.
