Support » Plugin: WP 404 Auto Redirect to Similar Post » Google Search Console still registering as 404

    Hi,

    Loving the plugin. It works great in front end. However, Googlebot still appears to claim 404 even though it’s working. I did a “fetch as google” and it showed it was redirected. But, it said the redirected URL was the exact same as the original 404’d page. It showed correct 301 header, but somehow the correct URL was not passed onto Google. Any way to fix?

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Have you tried to mark the reported pages as “resolved” in Google Search Console?

    Regards.

    Hi,

    Please see this: https://imgur.com/a/oPRfEDZ

    It shows the 404 link, but then shows it was redirected to the same link.

    Although, in real life, it worked as intended. It found the correct post on the fly and redirected to it.

    For Google, though, it’s still showing as a 404 despite the correct 301.

    Any idea why?

    Thank you!!

    Hello,

    It’s not the same URL: the https:// becomes https:/

    BTW, if I can suggest you something, try to manage your external redirection goto with IDs, or use urlencode() to avoid this kind of problem.
