    Search Console Shows "Not Found" Error for 301?


    I thought 301 was the preferred method of redirecting one page to another permanently. However, I placed (or rather, I gave the website company) a bunch of 301 redirects, and now Search Console says these pages are, "Not Followed". Why?

    There can be two reasons either the redirection has not been done properly or the second reason could be that after the redirection it will take sometime to Google cache the pages and then remove them from the Search Console if they have been redirected properly.
