This extension was built to replace all other “partial solution” extensions for redirects, canonicals, search engine indexation and HTTP header logging. Frankly each of those available did only a part (sometimes even wrong or incomplete), so we decided to build it right.
Having “LRT Link Redirect Trace” as an all-in-one solution to replace all other extensions means you get the full picture on every redirect. Test us in parallel to whatever you’re using and you’ll be surprised what you find, or better – what the existing extensions hid from you.
Link redirection is a process where one URL gets forwarded to another URL. If a strange domain is redirecting to you, you should check this case in more detail and find out if this is a valuable website or if it is harming you.
Are looking for an efficient way to track redirects and headers while you’re browsing?
We built an All-In-One browser extension to help you trace any redirect that you can think of. Enter Link Redirect Trace. Redirect tracing is something that everyone in Online Marketing and SEO should care about. A typical backlink profile usually includes redirects from other websites. There are several kinds of redirects, and each of them passes a different amount of Link Juice to Google.
The Link Redirect Trace extension allows you to check if your redirects are SEO-friendly or if they harm your website, by showing you:
•“standard” redirects in the HTTP header such as 301, 302, 303, 307, FAKE 307 and soon 308;
•single and multiple META Refresh redirects (also shows the refresh interval in the trace, i.e. "5 sec");
•Rel-Canonical redirects: unique and multiple HTML HEAD Rel-Canonical and HTTP Header Rel-Canonical;
•Alert about blocking of Major Search Engines, or ALL bots;
•Alert about broken Rel-Canonical targets;
•View LRT Power*Trust for every link redirect hop – an SEO metric that allows you to determine the power and trustworthiness of any link;
•Analyzes robots.txt for every redirect hop;
•Analyzes HTML <head> NoIndex, NoFollow per redirect hop;
•Analyzes the HTTP header X-Robots Noindex, Nofollow, NoArchive;
•Views full HTTP headers received for advanced users and developers;
•Shows cookies set for each redirect hop – understand those affiliate ad links;
•Highlights NoFollow links on the pages you browse;
•Detects if a redirect is cached by your browser and allows to cache-bust and get the real results from the server;
•Measures the time of a redirect hop and it shows you which redirect or URL shortener slows down user experience.
