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 contains the URL the visitor is redirected to.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5; url=">

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.
