308 Permanent Redirect

The HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) 308 Permanent Redirect redirect status response code indicates that the resource requested has been definitively moved to the URL given by the Location headers. A browser redirects to this page and search engines update their links to the resource (in 'SEO-speak', it is said that the 'link-juice' is sent to the new URL).

The request method and the body will not be altered, whereas 301 may incorrectly sometimes be changed to a GET method.

Note: Some Web applications may use the 308 Permanent Redirect in a non-standard way and for other purposes. For example, Google Drive uses a 308 Resume Incomplete response to indicate to the client when an incomplete upload stalled.[1]
