How to use Meta Tag to redirect an HTML page?

Page redirection is a situation where you clicked a URL to reach a page X but internally you were directed to another page Y. It happens due to page redirection.

To use a META Tag to redirect your site is quite easy. With this, use the http-equiv attribute to provide an HTTP header for the value of the content attribute.

The following is an example of redirecting current page to another page after 2 seconds. If you want to redirect page immediately then do not specify the content attribute.
