3xx status code...bad for SEO?


Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.thesignbridge.com/

I have just completed an SEO check and the below has been highlighted. Will these 3xx codes effect my SEO ranking? Do I need them?

Hi @TheSignBridge - the most common 3xx status code is a "301 redirect" - that's what you use to point an old, retired URL to a new location permanently so that anyone that clicks an old URL is still directed to a functioning page instead of an error page.

I'm not sure what SEO check tool you were using, but it looks like this is a reference to internal links on your site. It wouldn't cause a major SEO impact, but it is worth fixing. Find the page that contains these old links, and update them to the accurate URL for that page – it looks like the accurate URL is https://www.thesignbridge.com/sign-products

Hi Ed, me again. The error is still there and it seems to be the URL for the dropdown header I have that is causing the issue. I had to create a URL for this header but it isn't a clickable link to a page so it doesnt seem to be re-directing? Can you give any advice please?

I am also getting the following 4xx errors?

External links: Link on page with 4xx status code: https://twitter.com/thesignbridge
 
External links: Link on page with 4xx status code: http://instagram.com/thesignbridge

Not sure what the issue is with the social link error code — both are accurate URLs that resolve to the right place.

People often run into issues with the way Squarespace handles navigation folder URLs for dropdown menus – this comment thread might help:
