We have a site https://example.org/forecast/ that at the time of writing redirects to a "time-stamped" (
/forecast/month-year/) URL, like so: https://example.org/forecast/june-2022/. Say, in December, we will have a https://example.org/forecast/december-2022/ edition, etc. We may have three or four editions every year. In a nutshell, the "bare" URL should always redirect to the current edition. Technically, this is easy.
However, from an SEO as well as a "proper use of standards" point of view, my case appears not that easy. For me, this use case does fit neither a
301 (Permanent) nor a
302 (Temporary) redirect.
301 will cache indefinitely, which will not work for us, while
302 appears to be recommended for site migrations and other technical reasons.
Based on some old discussion of this from 2006 it appears that
302 would be the way to go, but 16 years later is that still the consensus?
