  • Redirect errors

    Was just wondering if anyone else hit a lot of redirect errors in Google Search Console since moving from VB4 to VB5? I'm seeing 81. Thing is when I visit the URLs in question they come up fine but GSC says not & refuses to index them just saying they are redirect errors. I asked GSC to recheck the URLs but it still insists there are redirect errors.

    What kind of redirects are you talking about here? vB4 URLs to vBulletin 5 URLs? Topic redirects? What?

      Hmm....Well....I'll try my best here. I don't really understand the ins and outs of it.


      All the errors seem to involve showthread.php.


      An example:
      The original URL Google Search Console complains about is https://www.snuson.com/showthread.ph...n-Coffee/page4

      and that URL is redirected successfully (when I try it) to https://www.snuson.com/forum/snus/pe...offee%2Fpage4=

      I'll attach a screen grab of how it looks in GSC.

        Those URLS should redirect with a 301. Not sure why Google isn't able to follow that redirection. The screenshot doesn't provide any valuable information as to why redirection failed.

        You should build and submit a vBulletin 5 XML SiteMap so all pages can be reindex properly. This can be done in the AdminCP under XML Sitemap.

          Thanks. Yes I have rebuilt my site map a few times since the VB5 upgrade went in through the ACP but it doesn't seem to help.

          I'll have another dig in Google Search Console.
