HELP! Permanent Redirect in Page Rule Mistake

Hi,

Thanks in advance for your help.

I’m a total noob. I created a page rule to forward to a particular website. I made a huge mistake and did a “permanent” redirect when I really only wanted temporary. Is there anyway to recover this?

Best,
Nat

It’s not a complete disaster. You can modify the Page Rule setting.

A “Permanent” 301 redirects just tells search engines it’s…well, permanent. When you fix the rule to make it “Temporary” (302), search engines will eventually figure it out…if they even noticed the 301 in the first place.

Wow. You are totally right. For some reason it felt better to freak out than just take a second and look at the settings. Ha ha. I was able to forward to another website. Thanks for your support.
