Response Codes: Internal Redirection (3XX)

back to issues overview

Internal Redirection (3XX)

Internal URLs which redirect to another URL. These will include server-side redirects, such as 301 or 302 redirects (and more).

How to Analyse in the SEO Spider

Use the ‘Response Codes’ tab and ‘Internal’ and ‘Redirection (3xx)’ filters to view these URLs.

View URLs that link to redirects using the lower ‘Inlinks’ tab and export them in bulk via ‘Bulk Export > Response Codes > Internal > Redirection (3xx) Inlinks’.

What Triggers This Issue

This issue is triggered when an internal URL returns a 3xx response code, indicating that it redirects to another URL.

For example:

HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently

How To Fix

Ideally all internal links would be to canonical resolving URLs, and avoid linking to URLs that redirect. This reduces latency of redirect hops for users, and enhanced efficiency for search engines.
