Support » Plugin: All 404 Redirect to Homepage & Broken images Redirection » ❗❗❗ Ok, I discovered something :)

  • I found something interesting about this plugin 🙂 Probably it creates itself 404 links to our site to buy the premium version and fix it 🙂

    The problem is a bit bigger, because google search console shows some data that is probably created by this plugin. Google normally wants to index these pages, and they are 404 errors that are redirected to the homepage. I know a little about positioning and I can say what I see.

    It has been going on for many years, recently the search console did not give so many errors, maybe they stopped. I’ve always wondered where these strange links come from and today that’s what I came up with 🙂

    I’m thinking ok, maybe it’s some bad luck. I have the other side with the same plugin and the problem is exactly the same. I will say more, I have websites without this plugin and there are no these problems, what do you say?

    For 3 years, on two of my sites, this plugin created over 100,000 pages with a 404 error, several dozen of them ended up in the Google search console.

    `What you are doing is very bad and nasty, there are much better ways to encourage a purchase but it’s just awful. WordPress should take care of it 🙂

    I am speaking probably because it is not possible to find concrete evidence, at least I cannot but can draw conclusions

    These are not allegations, this is my opinion about this plugin, it gives a well deserved 1 with an exclamation mark!

    If you can analyze your website in this way, I invite you to this topic. Check for yourself how this wonderful plug works for you.

    I would love to hear the answer and also change my mind if I’m wrong but I don’t think 🙂

    At the outset I would like to thank you very warmly for this great discovery, the evidence of which is only speculation and guesswork from your own thinking.

    (((We strongly deny the validity of all of the above)))

    I strongly ask you to provide evidence and proofs for these expectations, and if you are not able to do so, I invite you to use programming developers to help you with that.

    If you can’t prove your point then I think your best option is to stop making accusations + delete this assessment and reconsider it.

    For my part, I will inform the WordPress team myself about this comment so that they can take a decision on their side.

    Thank you

    This looks more like a support topic than a review, so I recommend asking at https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/all-404-redirect-to-homepage/#new-post so the plugin’s developers and support community can help you with this.
