Here is a new question I don’t think I’ve seen before. Someone asked Google if it is safe to keep a 302 redirect up for a long time. The question was “how long is it safe to use a 302 redirect?” The answer is, it is safe to keep them up for a long time.
John Mueller of Google said “Why would it be unsafe? I’m sure some 302 redirects have been in place since decades :)”
Why would it be unsafe? I’m sure some 302 redirects have been in place since decades 🙂

I’ve had some 301 and 302 redirects up for probably two decades or so now in some cases. I am not sure why that would be bad?
