Broken Redirect Description & How to Fix

Issue details

Redirects that point to a page returning one of the 4xx or 5xx HTTP response codes.

These URLs can be accessed neither by your website visitors nor by the search engines crawlers. Crawlers will be forced to abandon the request while people will most likely leave your website.

How to fix

For 4xx HTTP status codes of the destination URLs, replace the links to redirecting URLs on these pages with direct links to relevant live pages or remove these links.

For 5xx codes, you need to check with your hosting provider or with your web developer. Your server may be overloaded or misconfigured.
