How to refresh & redirect page in HTML?

You can refresh & redirect the page with just an HTML meta tag. Did you hear about this hack before it?  No problem, I will show you how can we do this. We can refresh and redirect the page with a unique meta tag inside your document's head.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="30">

This meta tag will provide you with refreshing functionality in HTML. In the http-equiv attribute you will define action refresh and in the content attribute, you will define set time, then after a set timeout (time represents seconds), the page will refresh automatically.
