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.
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
h1tags can help define your website’s theme and hierarchy, as well as give search engines the basic structure of your pages.
- Include a
around the URL of your redirect so that it’s clearly associated with the content on that page.
