Handle 301, 302, 307 & Other Redirects like a Pro with these tips from Google’s John Mueller

Time and again, SEO community discusses about how Google handles 302 redirects. This is so because a page’s ranking also depends upon how Google handles a 302.
In order to provide some clarity on the same, John Mueller from Google posted on G+ about how Google deals with redirects.
Here’s what he has to say:
“In general, a redirect is between two pages, here called R & S (it also works for pages called https://example.com/filename.asp, or pretty much any URL). Very simplified, when you call up page R, it tells you that the content is at S, and when it comes to browsers, they show the content of S right away. That sounds simple enough, why are there different types of redirects? Let’s take a look at the redirects, and then it’ll be clearer.”
How many redirects can you do at the same time? We follow up to 5 in a chain (please keep any redirect chain as short as possible), but you can redirect as many URLs on your site as you want at the same time.”
