What is a META Redirect?

A META redirect is nothing more than a tag in the header of a html page.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5; URL=http://www.yourdomain.tld/b.html">
Add some text and a link here, e.g.
You will be redirected to http://www.yourdomain.tld/b.html in 5 seconds, etc.

The redirection is done by the http-equiv "refresh". The "=5" in the content means redirect in 5 seconds. You can also change it to 0 (ZERO) to redirect immediatly.
