A crawl of your website will find all pages that are redirected, as well as the pages they are redirected to. Pages that are redirected return a status code of 3xx, which makes them easy to find in the the crawl results.

Here's how to identify any redirection loops on your website using OnCrawl.

Find redirect loops

Information on redirected pages can be found in the crawl analysis results. Because redirected pages are identified based on their status code (302 or 301), you'll find this information under Indexability > Status codes.

The Redirects, chains and loops chart will show you all of the pages that are part of a redirect loop.

Click on the number to go to a list of these pages in the Data Explorer.

From here, you can explorer or export this information.

You can also click on the URL in the Data Explorer to show the URL details for any page in a redirect loop. Scroll down to the 3xx redirection chain section to view a graphical representation of the loop--and of any chains leading into it:

The example above shows a chain of redirects leading to a loop created when a page is redirected to itself.

More information

You can find more information about the information OnCrawl provides concerning redirect loops and redirect chains.

This includes best practices, redirect chains (series of redirections that don't loops), analysis of loops and chains by depth or by group, and much more.
