Redirect Checker

Checker whether a URL has a Redirect.

Redirect Checker

The Redirect Checker helps determine if a URL has been modified to include a redirect. A website redirect, also known as a uniform resource locator (URL) redirect, is a server-side mechanism that can take the user from one URL to another. Many websites use redirects after changing their address for various reasons. The most important reason is to bring your site up to date with modern SEO practices. Without further ado, let's distinguish between 301 and 302 URL redirects. 

While 301 used to have a negative impact on page rank, that has been reversed as of 2016. The 301 redirects cost a website's page rank by around 15%. Matt Cutts, formerly of Google's Webspam team, outlined the process. However, in June 2016, it was confirmed that no website's page rank would drop due to redirections. Instead, it has the potential to increase a website's organic traffic.

What Is A Redirect Chain?

If one page on your site redirects to another, and that one redirects to a third, you've created what's known as a "redirect chain." Google needs help crawling sites that use chain redirects. Redirects frequently occur on your website without you even knowing it. Here are a few ways a long chain of redirects can hurt your website's search engine rankings.

  • Chains cause problems for search engine crawlers.
  • They'll make it take longer for each page to load on your site and create extra redirects.
  • Your backlink juice will be diminished.

It is common knowledge among those versed in SEO that not all redirects are useful. Search engine optimization (SEO) for a website might be negatively impacted by selecting certain parameters. This emphasises the significance of being aware of any website redirects. Check your URL redirection with our redirect checker handy tool!
