Hello Forum,
I am working with a Big (in terms of number of pages) website. Previously I was working with the Web Analytics and there was another person who used to take care of SEO. Recently management asked me to act as an supervisor of the SEO Activities.
In the process I was checking the Google Search Console Report. The report says 252164 pages are excluded from Google index due to wrong type of redirection issues. Our development team worked on a set of pages and rectified.
Now, do we need to submit request for re-consideration or I can wait for next Google Crawl?
Regards
Utsav

I would first use the GSC URL Inspection tool and if it shows all is fine, go back to the report interface and click to Validate the fix. They will notify you as soon as they accept your fix.

Hello,
Thanks for the suggestion; but the problem is the number of pages. Developers are claiming that they have fixed 1K pages, now you can understand that validate all those pages individually is not a easy task as well as time killing stuffs.
Is there any way to validate bulk pages at same time?

I was not suggesting that each URL should be manually inspected, but if they have fixed the problem for one or two then they have understood the problem and it has been fixed. You did not mention that each of these pages had some different problem. I would think it is then reasonable to Validate the fix.

Crawl your urls in something like screamingfrog and make sure the headers serve a '200 ok'. If they are all ok then create a sitemap for them all and upload to Google Search Console for crawling faster.
