Does Google crawl redirects?


Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,

Well, it depends, but in most cases, no. Redirects are not bad for SEO, but as with so many things only if you put them in place correctly. A bad implementation might cause all kinds of trouble, from loss of PageRank to loss of traffic. Redirecting pages is a must if you make any changes to your URLs.

Google Does Not Index Redirected Pages. This is probably obvious to most of you but Google's John Mueller said on Twitter that Google does not index redirects. We generally don't index URLs that redirect, so that seems to be working fine.
