What is a URL redirect?

Redirect refers to forwarding website users and search engines to a different URL than the one they originally requested.

For more information on redirects and when to use them, be sure to read our guidelines.

Why it is important for SEO?

Using redirects is essential to good website performance. However, it’s important that you use them correctly unless you want to undermine your website’s SEO health. By abusing redirects, you risk seeing your Google ranking drop. As a result, you may lose a good deal of organic traffic. The same is true for multiple redirects. Check out what Google says about these.

How do I test redirects with Sitechecker?

To find out what redirect trace your URL has or what its StatusCode is, just enter the link or domain into the field and press “Check”. Once the check has been completed, you’ll see the results in the results field.

Why should I use your redirection checking tool? What can it do?

Here are the main features that our finder has:

  • permanent 301 VS temporary 302;
  • HTTP to HTTPS;
  • chains check.

A chain is a series of redirects which follow each other. A redirect HTML chain can cause the following problems:

  • “too many redirects” error message;
  • increased delay times;
  • problems with crawl budget;
  • pages receive less SEO weight or lose it altogether.

The tool will show you the status code of your web page. The two possible results are:

  • 200 OK;
  • 404 error page.

URLs with multiple redirects should be set up correctly and checked regularly to prevent chaining and other SEO issues.
