Search Engine Friendly Redirect Checker Tool

Search engine spider crawling through a website will try to follow any redirects that we may have been set up. We could lose valuable search engine traffic due to incorrectly configured redirects, such as HTTP 302.

This SEO tool checks the HTTP status code from the header of a redirect, and tracks the HTTP response from the destination web server. If the header contains a valid HTTP 301 status code, then the requested resource has been assigned a new permanent URL. The returned URL is considered Search Engine Friendly, and any future references to this resource can now use the returned URL in a SEO friendly manner.

To use PHP to setup a 301 permanent redirect, create a index.php file in the directory with the following code:
     <?php
      header('HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently');
      header('Location: $url');
      ?>
where $url is the full URL location.
