Page Redirects Or Loops Unexpectedly

Last update: 19 March, 2017

You can redirect posts or pages using our Yoast SEO plugin. If a page redirects unexpectedly or causes a redirect loop only when our plugin is active, this means a redirect has been added to our plugin.

Redirect Added To The Individual Page or Post

The post level 301 redirect feature is slowly being removed from the free plugin in favor of the more robust premium redirect manager as discussed here.

Although you can no longer add new post level redirects, previously entered post level redirects will appear under the advanced tab of the Yoast SEO (free or premium) meta box.

Redirect Added In SEO Settings (Premium Version Only)

1
Log in to your WordPress website. When you’re logged in, you will be in your ‘Dashboard’. On the left-hand side, you will see a menu. In that menu, click on ‘SEO’.
2
The ‘SEO’ settings will expand providing you additional options. Click on ‘Redirects’.

3
Search for the post or page slug that should not redirect. Update or remove inaccurate redirects for the post or page.
Don’t forget to check the regex redirect tab as these types of redirects can be used to redirect multiple URLs to a single location.
