Perfect code to redirect a website to a different page on load
Posted On Saturday, September 27, 2014

Even though I expect codes like this to be very popular among webmasters, I still feel I should share this here with you. It's a simple code to redirect a landing page to another page or website.

<link rel="canonical" href="http://your-website.com/"/> 
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=http://your-website.com/">
<script type="text/javascript">
    var url = "http://your-website.com/";

    // IE8 and lower fix
    if (navigator.userAgent.match(/MSIE\s(?!9.0)/))
        var referLink = document.createElement("a");
        referLink.href = url;

    // All other browsers
    else { window.location.replace(url); }

Paste this code immediately after the opening <html> tag of your web page and replace http://your-website.com/ with the website address you want the page to redirect to.
