By using this tag you are able to define after how long a page has to be refreshed or after a certain period of seconds you want your visitor to be redirected to another webpage.

Search engines usually don’t like it when you use refresh pages. A better solution is to add a click-able link.
It can influence your ranking in a negative way by using this tag the wrong way!

Key Takeaway

However, it is not supported by all browsers and can be confusing to the user. The W3C recommends that this tag not be used. Google recommends using a server-side 301 redirect instead.
  • Meta refresh redirects have been used by spammers to fool search engines.
