Hello Everyone!!

I just want to discuss one critical issue here which I am facing presently. My website is based on skin and hair treatment in wordpress. My website is having many pages for different treatments like FUE Hair transplant, Vaser Liposuction and Eyebrows implants etc. Each treatment has a dedicated webpage.

My website already had one dedicated page for FUE Hair Transplant but I don't like the page's look, so now I have created one new web page with different design and graphics for FUE Hair Transplant. Now both pages are live but most of the content are same on both webpages. Now I want to redirect the traffic from my old webpage to the new webpage for FUE Hair Transplant.

I know there are few procedures to redirect a webpage. I want to use Wordpress 301 redirect plugin, but I am worrying about the ranking and traffic. If I use Wordpress 301 redirect plugin, Will it affect the link juice, PR juice and any SEO Values of the webpage as My old FUE transplant webpage is on top rankings now. Can you please advise me what would be the best procedure to redirect this old page to the new one without losing any SEO Values and traffic.

Thanks in advance...

If both pages are the same content then you should use a redirect from page1 to page2

There are more ways to do that, I searched on the forum and found some methods to use php or htaccess for redirecting a webpage

Using PHP
Code:
header( "HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently" );
header( "Location: http://www.example.com/your-page/" );

Using htaccess
Code:

Using a Wordpress plugin
Code:

You can use Wordpress 301 redirect plugin without worrying about ranking and traffic, that should be done for your site.

Instead of redirecting the old page to the new page, why not just replace the copy of the original page with the new updated content? Redirecting here doesn't make any sense to me. Just keep a copy of the original HTML for the original page as a backup in case you want to go back to that original content for some reason in the future. As long as your on-page SEO is done well on the updated content, there shouldn't be a major problem. You might see your rankings bounce around for a few weeks when you make the change. Just wait it out as long as you know you did your on-page SEO well.

The only reason I can think of where you would want to publish an entirely new page is if you want to change the URL for some reason. Like maybe you don't have a certain keyword in the URL and you want to add it in there or maybe you want to shorten your URL because you made it too long in the first place. But unless you want to change the URL for some reason, then it doesn't make sense to publish a new page with a redirect. Just replace the original content on that high ranking page with the new updated content.
