Site structure and redirect mapping are two key components of website development. Site structure is the way the content and pages of a website are organized. Redirect mapping is the process of mapping old URLs to new URLs so users will be redirected to the new page even if/when they type in the old URL.
Site structure is important for a number of reasons. It helps with content planning, technical hosting, and URLs migration. It also helps maximize the user experience and create a website that is easy to navigate and use.
Redirect mapping is also important for website development. It ensures that users who type in an old URL are redirected to the correct page, thus minimizing the risk of users getting lost or frustrated. With careful planning and implementation, both site structure and redirect mapping can make a website easier to use, better optimized for search engines, and overall, more successful.
