Do you want to add a redirect to your ClickFunnels account so that visitors can click a link or button to get to the page they want? You can do this with a little bit of coding. In this article, we’ll discuss how to add a redirect using the ClickFunnels dashboard as well as give you some optional bonus tips on how to make your redirects as effective as possible.

The Basics

To add a redirect, you’ll need to:

  • Login to your ClickFunnels dashboard.
  • Click the “Settings” tab at the top of the screen.
  • Click “Redirects” near the top of the screen.
  • Click “+Add a redirect”.
  • Give your redirect a name (e.g., “Visit My Website”)
  • Type the URL for the redirect in the “Target URL” field.
  • Select either “Single Page” or “Multi-page” for the “Redirect Type” option.
  • Check the box next to “Automatically follow links” if you’d like visitors to your new site to be redirected to another page when they click a link on your current site.
  • Click the “Save Changes” button at the top of the screen.

If you want to see what your redirects look like, you can click the “Preview” button next to the “+Add redirect” button. If you’d like to add more redirects, just click “+Add redirect” again.

Optional Bonus Tips

There are a few things you can do to make your redirects more effective. Each of these tips can be found under the “Settings” tab in your dashboard.

  • Selecting single page instead of multi-page redirects can greatly reduce how often your visitors have to click a back button on their browser. While there’s no exact science in determining how many bounces a visitor will get before converting, studies have shown that a single redirect from a major brand can cause an average of three to four bounces before the visitor converts.
  • Using canonical URLs can help raise your domain authority and trustworthiness with Google and other search engines.
  • Setting the “Status Code” to 301 will ensure that search engines know your content has been moved as a permanent redirect and will pass along any trust/authority you’ve built up. Ideally, you should set your status code to 301 and be consistent with it across your site.
  • Using the HTML header and h1 tags can help define your website’s theme and hierarchy, as well as give search engines the basic structure of your pages.
  • Include a

    tag

    around the URL of your redirect so that it’s clearly associated with the content on that page.
