In HTTP protocol a redirect is a directive to replace the current page with another. It is used in exactly this sense in wiki software, as follows:

#REDIRECT [[target page name]]

There are many uses for this feature. Disciplined use of redirect makes wikis drastically more usable:

If redirects proliferate, it is easy enough to replace all links to the redirect name and then delete the redirect. This should not be done if there is a legitimate reason to differentiate the different links to a page, however, as in the alternate title case.
