Redirect Checker

How many redirects can I use on a site?

Some SEOs think, that google gives a penalty to a site, when it uses a lot of 301 redirects. Extensive redirecting has primary no influence on rankings and website quality.


Pro Tip:

If you want to implement a big number of redirects for page sculpting you should implement them in smaller chunks time by time. You should also try to reduce the rules. Less rules mean better server performance and faster page load speed.
