    What is the best way to use this option?
    Simply place the redirect url (I use absolute)
    Is there a need to also check:
    Apply noindex to this post/page [?]
    Apply nofollow to this post/page [?]
    Apply noarchive to this post/page [?]
    to compemsate for the url link in the browser which has /name-of-my-redirected page/ upon hover, prior to correct redirect function.

    What is best practice?

    If the redirect is permanent, it should return a 301 response. You should use the redirect URI and confirm that it returns the correct response code. If it does, there’s no need to check any of the SEO settings, because the a) search engines will quickly remove the old URL that has the 301 response and b) the SEO settings of the target of your redirect will apply.

    You don’t need to worry about the URL in your browser bar, because that might not even be a valid URL at all. What matters is the response sent by your server.

    If your server isn’t sending a 301 response to that redirect, you can either check with your host or investigate other redirect approaches.

    Apply noindex to this post/page

    Apply nofollow to this post/page

    Apply noarchive to this post/page
