  • What exactly is Google Webmaster Tool saying?

    google said :

    Google couldn’t follow your URL because it redirected too many times.

    I think 404 Redirected plugin made this problem to me but don’t know how to fix it

    A 404 redirect means that the url the user requested doesn’t excist, so you redirect the user to a custom 404 error/page not found page.

    Why would you need this?

    I read a article about this plugin in the web and I think It’s useful for my site, In that article was told that this plugin automatically found 404 page and redirect them, I install that plugin and after 1 day I saw that plugin redirect 1128 link automatically.

    I’m really confound and don’t know what to do!

    Well, having a 404 error is a serious problem. It means that users are being directed to pages that don’t exist. But, a well built site doesn’t have pages that don’t exist.

    + WordPress has built in 404 pages. This means that if it were to happen that a user gets directed to a page that doesn’t exist, he or she gets shown your 404 page, saying, sorry, this page doesn’t exist.

    What I do. I use the default WP 404 pages. But, I also monitor the traffic on this 404 page. So, if there is a problem, google analytics will tell me, x visitors on the 404 page. Then I know, there is a problem.

    So, unless you really really want to redirect users not to the default 404 page but to another page, there’s no need for a 404 redirect plugin.

    If you do want to redirect, you’ll have to reconfigure the plugin. That’s what google webmaster tool is telling you.

    By the way, 1128 redirects on 1 day really weird. Something wrong there. As I said, either loose the plugin or configure it properly.

    Thank you very much peter, I will do that and hope to solved this problem
