What is a Meta Redirect?
A meta redirect, or meta refresh redirect, is an HTML attribute that instructs the browser to refresh and redirect the user to another URL after a specified period of time.
You can create a meta redirect by adding the below meta tag to the webpage’s head tag.
5 is the time in seconds when the redirection would occur, while
https://www.yourdomain.com/new-page/ contains the URL the visitor is redirected to.
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5; url=https://www.yourdomain.com/new-page/">
The meta redirect is a client-side redirect. That is, the redirection occurs on the visitor’s browser. This contrasts with regular redirections, which happen on the server.
