Is it Okay to 301 redirect an URL to slightly different content but satisfying the same intent?
I was always thinking it`s a good ideal, but today I read an article
Where John Mueller said:
"We can forward PageRank through 301 and 302 redirects. Essentially what happens there is we use these redirects to pick a canonical. "
"301-redirecting for 404s makes sense if you have 1:1 replacement URLs, otherwise we’ll probably see it as soft-404s and treat like a 404."|
So it seems that 301 should only done with exatly same content?
Let me know your thought,
