With all the errors due to faulty redirecting, you probably dropped a lot in search engines, as well as lost some loyal visitors.

There may not be a problem with the site. The redirects may not actually be 'errors'. You need to do a very careful evaluation before you start tinkering with anything at all.

The redirect stats simply may be showing that people on other sites are linking to your site as non-www when your site is at www. In that case, get the other sites to update their links. Do NOT remove the redirects. They are vital to prevent Duplicate Content issues.

It might be that the site has had a redesign in the past that led to new URLs for the site content being implemented. In that case the redirects are vital for where people are still linking to the old URLs. In this case, try to get the other sites to update their links. Do NOT remove the redirects.

It might be that your internal navigation is pointing to URLs that, when accessed, issue a redirect. In this case you must update the URLs that appear in the links on your pages. Clicking internal navigation should not take you to URLs that redirect. Do not remove the redirect. Instead, edit the on-page links so that they point to the right URL.

There are many other scenarios. What you need to do, if anything, depends on what the problem is, if indeed there is a problem at all.

i dont understand you here 100% , but in my site when i try to access domain.com/widget.html its redirect me directly to www.domain/widget.html with www , maybe its that the cause ?

my site is joomla powered, at the configuration the live site was : www.domain.com , i have changed it to domain.com and when i tried to access it its took me to domain.com/index.php and gived me this error in firefox :
The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

what do you think please
