Search Redirects

You can find this section under Search > Search Redirects in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

Using this section you have the ability to Redirect search terms entered by customers to specific pages on the Desktop site (and also your Mobile and Trade sites if you have these enabled). This is one of the most powerful features of the IRP search functionality; redirects are straightforward to configure, for example you can populate URL-rewritten redirects by using placeholders.

The SearchRedirects.aspx page appears as follows:
