I’ve published a very simple single page website (multi page site if you include the privacy page) and it is being hosted on a third party hosting provider. After hosting the website, I signed up and requested a site scan and index to be performed, using the Google Search Console. After the scan, I received a report indicating that the site cannot be indexed because of a Redirect Error.
I decided to look into what a Redirect Error means, and here’s where the
Learn More link displayed:
Google experienced one of the following redirect errors:
- A redirect chain that was too long
- A redirect loop
- A redirect URL that eventually exceeded the max URL length
- A bad or empty URL in the redirect chain
Use a web debugging tool such as Lighthouse to get more details about the redirect.
Before going down the Lighthouse rabbit hole, where are redirects used? I have no “links” in my web site that redirect it to any other site? Is this an artifact of the web site build process that Sparkle uses? How can I fix this error?
Thank you for any help.
