Redirect Chain 301

Post by fabioweb90 » Thu Dec 20, 2018 11:13 pm

Hello! my SEO supervisor asked me to remove the redirect chain as you can see from the attachment.
In short you will see that from URL A redirect to URL B and finally to URL C
Is it harmful for SEO? How can I redirect directly from URL A to URL C?

Thank you all
Fabio

Hello Fabio

Yes, he is right it is harmful, every redirect lost 10-15% of page weight.

So just create straight redirects from every version of your page to main.

No, In fact 301 helps in transferring the whole SEO juice to the other webpage. It can hurt if you are transferring it to a non relevant location.

Just to keep it all neat, I'd recommend having a 301 redirect from A > C, then another one from B > C.

Yes, but It is not so Harmful, A redirect chain occurs when there is more than one redirect between the initial URL and the destination URL. So try to give the link directly and it should be relevant. Place the text as a clickable one and insert the Landing Url where the page is to redirect.
