307 redirect

Categories: 0-9, SEO Glossary

A 307 redirect is an HTTP status code used to indicate that the resource a user is attempting to access has been temporarily moved to a different URL, as specified by the Location header in the HTTP response. This type of redirect is a clear indication that the original URL is expected to be used again in the future; hence, the redirect is strictly temporary. Unlike the 302 status code, which can be interpreted in various ways, the 307 redirect was introduced with HTTP/1.1 to provide unambiguous semantics, ensuring that the method and the body of the original request are not changed when the request is followed. This makes the 307 redirect a reliable choice for temporary redirection where it is important to maintain the integrity of the original HTTP request method.
