I have a page that was redirected to the same page with a new URL a few
years ago. I now want to assign a new URL and redirect to the new page.
The first redirect is:
Redirect permanent /safety.html
The new redirect is:
Redirect permanent /workplace-ergonomics.html
Should I leave the two as is, or should I rewrite the first one so it points
to the new page?
e.g. Redirect permanent /safety.html

Is that a typo for safety-ergonomics? I'll assume it is; otherwise
there's not much point to your article. :-)
When someone's browser requests /safety.html, do you want the server
to take two steps or one to serve ergonomics.html ?

Why We Won't Help You:
Thanks Stan. Actually, the /safety.html was originally named by someone else
several years ago. Then about three years ago I changed it to
/workplace-ergonomics.html for obvious reasons. Now I am changing it again
to simply /ergonomics.html .
I see your point about the server taking one vs. two steps. So I will point
both to the new name /ergonomics.html .
Thanks a lot,
