At All in One SEO (AIOSEO), we’ve always been listening to your feedback to make it the best SEO plugin for WordPress.
We know you’ve been looking for a way to manage your redirects and improve SEO rankings with the help of one single plugin.
Well, look no further!
Today, we’re thrilled to introduce AIOSEO’s Redirection Manager addon for Pro and Elite plans. You can now easily manage 301 redirects, keep track of 404 errors, and fix dead-ends. It can even automatically send users and search engines from your old URLs to your new ones.
Our goal with the Redirection Manager addon is to give users the simplest way to perform redirects and boost their SEO without needing to have server knowledge.
Let’s dive into the details…
Fixing Your 404s Is Crucial for SEO
We understand that managing your website’s content sometimes means you’ll have to delete or move it. When you do, it’s important to redirect your old URLs to avoid 404 errors and dead-ends since it can hurt your rankings and give users a bad experience.
Here are some ways it can hurt your SEO if not redirecting old pages:
- Users Can Still Find and Click on Your Deleted Pages — Even after deleting your old pages, they remain in the search engine index, and users can still find and click on them. And when they do, they’ll see a 404 error, which is confusing for both users and search engines.
- You Can Lose Valuable Backlinks and Rankings — If you’ve managed to get backlinks to your website and other sites are linking to your old URLs, you’ll lose both your visitors and SEO rankings for these pages.
- Less Visibility of Your Important Content — By not fixing these errors and redirecting to your new pages, you can lose visibility for your important content. If search engines have to spend time crawling your non-existing or unnecessary pages, they won’t pay as much attention to your good content either, which will hurt your SEO.
But here comes the good part!
AIOSEO’s Redirection Manager addon now offers easy and simple management of your 301 redirects and 404 errors.
Easy and Simple Management of 301 Redirects
Unlike other redirection plugins, AIOSEO and its powerful SEO tools and features give you access to everything you need to maximize your SEO — from one single plugin.
And our Redirection Manager addon is the next step in making it super easy for you to manage your website content.
To begin with, it lets you redirect your URLs using either NGINX or htaccess without needing any server knowledge. All you need to do is choose the redirect method you want to use.
To give you an idea of how easy it is to manage your redirects, you can create temporary or permanent redirects simply by pasting in your old and target URLs straight into the fields.
It gets even better…
To make things even easier, AIOSEO’s Redirection Manager can automatically redirect users and search engines to your new content whenever you delete or change an URL.
It even monitors the trash for you, so no 404’s will ever go unnoticed.
Best of all, you don’t have to be a web developer or constantly monitoring your site because our Redirection Manager does this for you.
Redirect Multiple URLs
The Redirection Manager addon also lets you redirect multiple URLs to the same destination URL.
This speeds up the redirect process when you’re for example switching domains or want to move your content to a new website.
You can also view all the redirects and 404’s happening on your site, including information about the visitor, browser, and the referrer.
A ‘hit’ count is logged for each redirect, so you can see if a URL is being used.
Also, the logs can be exported, searched, and filtered if you want to investigate them in more detail.
It can’t get much easier than that!
Track 404 Errors
To be able to fix any potential issues on your website, you first need to know they exist.
AIOSEO’s Redirection Manager keeps track of all 404 errors that happen on your website and allows you to detect and fix problems.
And you can easily add a new redirect directly from the logs tab.
Server Level Redirects for Faster Performance
For more advanced users, we even have a feature where you can configure redirects to work at the server level, which significantly speeds up the redirect process.
We have automatic integrations with both Apache and NGINX, so you can easily enable server side redirects to improve performance.
The best part about our Redirection Manager is that it allows you to easily import redirects from an AIOSEO file or other popular redirect tools and plugins.
This to make sure you’re not losing any of your pre-existing redirects.
One of the easiest things to forget about redirects is that they have to move with the domain. So if you redesign the site, or move to a new domain or CMS, all those redirects need to go with you. Luckily you can now export all redirects and logs with a single click.
AIOSEO’s Redirection Manager addon for Pro and Elite plans makes it easier for you to manage your website’s content. And at the same time, it helps search engines and users not to get lost while browsing your site. It’ll help keep visitors on your page, as well as your rankings on Google.
