Redirect Checker

Many directories make redirects to external sites. As search engines are still mislead by some types of redirects, webmasters need to know which type of redirection is used to their site.

This information is also useful to directory owners as they are not always aware of the techniques used to count the clicks to external sites.

With this tool, you check a redirect in seconds, even if you are not a HTTP-header guru !

Which redirection ?

Enter the URL:


The fast and easy redirect checker

This tool provides a simple and precise answer to a question, often asked by SEO’s, directory owners and webmasters. It immediately identifies the three main types of redirections : 301 redirect, 302 redirect or HTML redirect (meta refresh).

It also detects frames (FRAME tag) within the page pointed to by the tested link.

The tool only analyses HTML links. It should not be used with JavaScript links.

    Jeff, you get different results when repeating the test, because this is the way your web site works. I am not sure if this comes from your application or from the GoDaddy host. Anyway this is not good for SEO.

    You got “invalid URL” because these URL’s were unreachable.
