Support » Plugin: Redirection » How to filter 404 ?parameters

  • Resolved dominmax


    I switched to woocommerce from magento.
    And after that I have about 1000 404 caused by bots about parameters like ?size… / ?color… etc.
    How can I filter the staff (parameters or bots) from the 404 list that I could find a real bugs in redirections from the old site?

    As I noticed, it was needed already 3 years ago on the forum. It would be really useful feature. 404 are very important tool and it is not possible to muddle through bots without any filter.

    Best regards,

    It’s not easy to know what is a bot and what is not a bot. You can use the ‘group by URL’ dropdown to see where most of the 404s are happening, and then decide what to do there. There are additional bulk management tools you can use

    What I did:
    1. group by user agent
    2. ctrl+F “bot” – mark all bot name of user agents (hope they are 99% bots)
    3. check these “bots”
    4. bulk delete

    Thank you 😉
