Redirects with bot hits

All pages that are redirecting but still receive google bot hits.

Priority: Low

Impact: Negative

What issues it may cause

Search engines are using crawl budget to crawl pages that are redirecting to other pages, which may mean that crawl budget is being wasted.

How do you fix it

You should investigate these pages to see if they are being linked internally and included in Sitemaps, and potentially update any links that are pointing to them so they go directly to the final redirect target instead.

What is the positive impact

Fixing these redirecting pages may result in improved crawl budget which means that search engines can discover, index and/or update your important pages faster and more frequently.

getCrawl(id: $crawlId) {
reportsByCode(

}
