Limit of 301 Redirects

 
 

In a video session Matt Cutts explains an issue of 301 redirection (permanent redirects) and talks about limits of use and how many redirects can be chained together.

Summary

  • There is no limit to a number of redirects from one site to another.
  • Multi-hop redirects (chained 301′s) will be followed but after 4 or 5 it might not (chance is close to 0).
