You have saved my website

I was looking for something like this. Thank you very much, because you’ve probably saved my website (a lot of 404 in Search Console (more than 1500)). I hope there won’t be 404 errors in Google SC anymore.
Thanks

Absolutely amazing!

I have been looking for this for ages, handling old entries in Googles index is a nightmare if it has do be done one by one manually. With this plug I get most links to get a relevant page and can focus on rewriting the remaining 404-s.

Well done!

Genius solution for (404/expired domain users)

Work as described, this is better than 404 to homepage more practical and effective SEO solution, Maybe you can make finding matched URLs better. but anyway you deserve this review: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ARABSEO/permalink/1064463563733655/

My Best,

Nice plugin!!!

The best plugin to manage the google search console 404 errors.It does the redirect automated in a similar page. I used similar plugins before but i had to set the redirect urls on my own for every 404 error i had.
