    Redirect error (URL not followed)


    I have a REDIRECT rule to change URL with "&" to "%26" as shown below

    RewriteCond METHOD GET|HEAD
    RewriteCond URL [^?]+&.*
    RewriteHeader X-Redirect-Amp: .* 1

    RewriteRule ([^?]+)&(.*) $1%26$2 [NS,I]

    RewriteCond X-Redirect-Amp: 1
    RewriteCond Host: (.*)
    RewriteRule (.*) http\://$1$2 [I,RP]


    Google is showing many URLs not followed (Redirect error).
    Is it because of the above rule? If so what can be done to overcome it.


    TIA,
    Andy

    Hi,

    There are URL's including %26 in Google results.

    Did you check your redirects with a redirect checker tool or with a HTTP header analyzer ?

    Thanks Jean.
    When I use the redirect checker tool for the failed URL's, it shows 'redirect is search engine friendly' ; Status : (301) Moved Permanently.


    Am I missing something here ?
