Hello guys, we are back with another interesting article about How to fix Google Search Console Error: Redirect Error.


We often see people getting different types of errors on Google Search Console while managing a site including "Redirect Error". It's really hard for them to remove/resolve it as they don't know the reason why they are getting it. So without knowing the reason, they can't come up with a solution. BUT you don't have to worry about it because we found its solution. In this article you will find out how to fix Google Search Console Error: Redirect Error.

Reason for getting "Redirect Error" in Search Console​

Generally, it means that the page could not be accessed by the Google bot because it redirects to a page that doesn’t exist. The study says it’s best to set up a 301 redirect to a new page when you move/remove a page on your site to tell the web browser that the page has moved.

Main causes of Redirect error:
  • There is a redirect chain that is too long (more than 3)
  • There is a redirect loop which is making "A" points to "B" and "B" points to "A".
  • There is a bad or empty URL in the redirect chain


How to fix it?​

Just take a brief review of all of your redirects and ensure there is only a single redirect whenever possible. Make sure all of reasons are clearly discussed above. You can use Chrome Extension “Ayima” which is a great tool to it.

There is another trick that can be used to solve it if the above one is not working. Just follow these steps:
  • Click on the INSPECT URL
  • Get more details about the errors
  • Click the TEST LIVE URL
  • Fix the error and REQUEST INDEXING
  • Go back and click VALIDATE FIX

You will get this message after the error is fixed.
