How Broken Redirects affect SEO

SEO Tips No Comment

Broken Redirects SEOIf you want that your website should be a popular then, this popularity can only be achieved if Google has ranked your site fairly fine. For this, your SEO strategies must be good and free from all kinds of damages.

Broken links act as an unfruitful experience for your beloved customers. This is due to the reason that whenever a customer visits a website, he/she wants to immediately land on to the website which is useful for them. But, the interference of these unwanted links forbids that task. This is the reason as to why it is recommended not to have broken pages on your website.

When your website links to a different website, it is called outbound links. These outbound links affect SEO in the following ways:

Increase of load on your page

Under outbound links, a chain of redirects goes from one URL to another. At every step in this process, about 10-20% of authority is lost. This also increases all overload of the webpage. All this, in turn, decreases the quality of your website, and you lose your customers, unfortunately. Even a single step redirect can do this damage.

Increases the time of loading

There is no denying the fact that even a single redirect of URL can increase the loading time of the actual website one wants to reach. This wastes the time of all the visitors of a particular website. And certainly, that website may lose traffic in future.

Harm created via your internal links

Another way in which an outbound link can affect your SEO is through your internal links. Due to this defect, your internal links start to point out to those unnecessary URLs that are redirected to another place altogether.Β  This way the customers lands up to wrong and unwanted sites.

Following ways may help you to avoid outbound links:

  1. First and the foremost prevention you should carry from your side is keep on auditing your webpage and website on a regular basis. This gives you an assurance that your traffic is not directed to broken pages.
  2. If your site is comparatively large then it is not possible to check each page manually. Under such scenario, it is recommended to pay and have back-link checkers. These checkers help to find out the broken links and repair them.
  3. Try to update your page or content and do not remove it once you discover that your webpage is infected with outbound linking. This prevents unwanted 404 pages (it is that type of error which may result due to relocation or deletion of content on the page).
  4. Also, if the old content of your website stillΒ exists but you have changed the location due to outbound linking, then make sure to redirect the visitors to the new page. For this, 301 redirects can be used.

Above everything, if you want to save your website from such harmful attacks, and want a proper ranking on every search engine, then keep a regular check of your website. This regularity only helps you to catch and repair the problems at their roots only.

β€œAfter over two years of research we chose Simplio. We are so far very satisfied. These people answered the phone on a Sunday and fixed a problem that was not even their fault. It was the host company which I had chosen that had caused our site to go down.”

I cannot even imagine having another company managing my Presta shopping cart.

β€œThey are now part of the Diastasis Rehab business team after working with them almost a year now. I cannot even imagine having another company managing my Presta shopping cart. After a bad experience with a programmer, I needed a new programmer (one that knew prestashop shopping cart) and most important one that I could trust. Finding all three was a difficult process! Lucky for me I found them. I cannot say enough about the diversity of services that this company provides. Every step of the way they make amazing suggestions to increase my sales and they get back to be right away either by email or phone. They have even created a simple and easy check out program for Presta Shop. They are actually a one stop shop! They updated my SSL, are setting up and changing my server to a dedicated one, setting up streaming of my DVD, website design, creating a specific program for address verification on Presta cart and handled the integration of Presta cart with my fulfillment house. I am now working on developing an APP with them”
