Let's discuss it with example. if your previous website was www.xyzsite.com and you wanted to change it to www.goodxyzsite.com , you'd implement a 301 redirect from the old URL to the new one. Now whoever typed in your old URL (or clicked on a leftover link to your old URL), would automatically appear at your new URL.

Benefit of 301 is that it redirects are above all important from the point of view of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). As it is the only server code that indicates the permanent move of a page to a new address, it is also the only code that is completely understood by search engines when indexing a site. Using a good server configuration, and well designed 301 redirects when releasing a new version of your website is thus crucial for your presence on search engines, and your potential incoming traffic.

301 redirect is a catch phrase often used in SEO where nobody really explains how to do it. Many people feel too dumb to ask "how do I do a 301 redirect?" because they feel they should just know what one is.

A 301 redirect is a method of telling web browsers and search engines that a web page or site has been permanently moved to a new location.

It is the great method for implementing redirects on a website. Search engines don't apply penalities to 301 redirection. Thus search engines value signals to the new URL as the crawlers understand that your content has moved permanently.
