What is redirect chain?

URLs are redirected for a number of different reasons, but some of them can be malicious. Usually, redirects are added after pages are deleted, a site is moved to a new domain, a site is moved to HTTPS, the URL of a page is changed, two or more websites are merged into one, etc. Redirect chains can result in increased page load times and also lead to pages being excluded from Google's index. Some redirects can also send you to unexpected pages, which could be harmful to your online security.

Why do I need to track my URL?

  1. Because you want to check for unnecessary redirects to make it easier for users and crawlers to follow your links.
  2. Because you're curious and want to know where a shortened URL is going (and you might not trust the source).
  3. Because you're security oriented and you want to avoid a phishing or malware attack.
  4. Because you're a website builder and/or marketer and want to check your links.
