      Description

      Lots of old pages (e.g. https://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/4.0.0/guide_hybrid_plugins_index.md.html) are still listed in Google as they are of course very widespread and linked to. The new website obviously recognized these and knows where the new site is:

      > It looks like the content has moved here.

      which links to https://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/4.0.0/guide/hybrid/plugins/index.html.

      To improve the user experience and also tell Google where it finds the correct new version of this page,so it will link to these directly in the future, these should automatically be redirected using a 301 Redirect header:
