Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
You should be careful that your redirects do not grow out of control. Having an extremly high number of redirects can cause trouble.This is what I'm concerned about. How can I know that I'm exceeding the limit? Say my website has 1 million pages, at what ration that I can have redirects?
(Truism: If you notice and fix a typo five minutes after coding it, some major search engine will have crawled during those five minutes-- even if it normally only visits the page once in three days.)
firstURL >> thirdURLThat's I need to work on as it will eventually lead to the chained redirects right?
Do you have analytics code on the 404 page itself?Yes, the old page have the analytic code.
In each case, the URL reported by analytics should come through as the originally requested page, not as the URL of the 404/403 page.I am confused, could you please explain? Also what does a 403 page has to do with my post? I'm curious, isn't it the forbidden pages?
just name the new page the same url as the destination of those links.That sounds like tricky. Sure, will try that :-)
Yes, the old page have the analytic code.
