META Forwarding

This tutorial will show you how to redirect a web page to a new location using
META redirection. This is useful in cases when you want a simple redirect to a new page or website. Also it can be used if you cannot or do not want to use other way for redirection.

To do a META forwarding create one ‘hml’ or ‘html’ file and pout the following line into it:

Do not forget to change ‘http:////domain.tld/folder/index.html’ with the URL that you want ot forward to.

If you have already a page that you want to redirect the META tag must be put on its right place. This is in the ‘<head>’ section in the file.
The next is an example where is the right place in the HTML structure.

Other methods for redirect can be found in page redirect methods tutorial.
