Have you ever had seasonal or sold products? When the product is not for sale in a certain time, you should use a 302 Redirect function to redirect customers to another page on your website.
A 302 Redirect is a process or status code, that means found. Browser user is redirected from one URL to another, because of webpage relocation. But this move is just temporary. A 302 Redirect does not contain a new address. Search engines have to choose whether keep the old page or replace it and there can occur some issues.
