An internal issue is causing an increase of redirect errors during indexing, and associated email notifications. This is not due to any website issues, but is due to an internal Google issue. We hope to fix this problem quickly.— Google Search Central (@googlesearchc) December 13, 2021
Does that mean you can ignore the notifications?Yes, but only when you are sure that your website really doesn’t have any errors. If the number of errors increased during the last couple of days, probably it was due to Google Search Console problems. However, in the following days, you must get a closer look at the matter and probably fix your errors.
How to check if redirects are correct?If you want to make sure your redirects are working correctly (which we highly recommend, obviously ;)), use tools like HTTPS Status or the Redirect Path plugin. Copy and paste your URL address you want to check into the tool and check the results. The correct redirect would be the 301 one, which is permanent and transfers the page’s strength. In the tool you should see:
- 301 redirect code,
- 200 code - meaning your page was found and works correctly,
- Information about only 1 existing redirect (remember that redirect chain can lower your domain strength).
