    HTTP 302 Temporary Redirect


      My client's website is developed using Coldfusion 8 and Fusebox 5. My client has employed an SEO consultant to look at the website and one of the suggestions the consultant has come back with is:

      "The website uses a 302 temporary re-direct command (Server language), if this could be changed to a 301 permanent re-direct as search engines tend to follow 301 commands better and trust them more in general. The words permanent and temporary aren't important it's just search engines follow them a lot easier as well."

      I have to admit to not knowing too much about HTTP headers.

      Please could someone explain to me what this suggestion means in a bit more detail and whether it is something I can easily implement?

      Many thanks in advance for your assistance...
