You have the following options in the opened modal:

In the following I will go into "beginning with" and "exact match" in more detail.

Example "beginning with"

In this example, the English section of a website that was still present in the previous version is currently missing. Since many Google links still point to English pages, these are to be forwarded to a landing page. For this an entry is made with "beginning with" and "/en". Then the document "landingpage-english" can be placed in the column "destination".

Example "exact match"

In an advertisement you would like to refer to a special product of your online shop. So that the customer does not have to type in the complete link, it is advisable to forward it here. For example, will take you directly to the product page.
