What Is an HTTP 307 Temporary Redirect?

307 Temporary Redirect is a redirect type that indicates the requested page is temporarily available in the original location. When this status is generated, the requested content is served from the new temporary location.  

When 307 redirection is enabled, search engines get to know that the redirection is temporary, which helps you keep the ranking intact. 

When to Use 307 Temporary Redirect

A common way of using 307 temporary redirects is when your site is undergoing maintenance. By setting up 307 redirects, you can temporarily redirect users to another resource on your website. 

Another great way of using the redirect is when you are updating seasonal campaign pages. While you’re updating those pages, you can set up a 307 temporary redirect to send the visitors coming from the search engine to a related page.
