Long-term websites experience numerous changes in their lifespan. Pages are being deleted or moved over time to suit the ever-changing Internet landscape. When deleting or moving a website, the backlinks to it will likely be left untouched unless updated. Due to this, both human users and index crawlers will likely encounter an error while accessing the page. Error reports can affect your rankings negatively. Most website owners use URL redirect plugins to avoid losing rankings.
We’d like to introduce you to our WordPress redirect plugin “1ON1 URL Redirects” that was specifically designed to create SEO friendly redirects and solve duplicate content issue and potential of “Google Dance” due to indexing of WordPress Tags.
Our plugin allows you to create 301 Redirects with Tags to post redirection option, which means when you view the tag URL it redirects to the assigned post or page of the tag which helps with WordPress SEO and resolves duplicate content issue.
1ON1 URL Redirect works well with both WordPress Nav Menus and Custom Post Types. It can also add a “no follow” attribute or open redirect pages in a new window if you apply the “Use jQuery?” option. Not only that, the webmaster can assign a new URL to a webpage, completely replacing the old one, just by using the plugin.
Technically, you want your WordPress Tags noindexed, however, not everyone actually do that. WordPress tags do not have any real SEO benefit, and in fact, using them excessively can clutter your website, create a poor user experience, cause duplicate content issues and even have a negative impact on the SEO of your website as a whole.
For example, let’s say you are currently ranking for “mykeyword” with the actual dedicated blog post targeting that keyword. Now, you assign a tag “mykeyword” to that blog post, so WordPress now creates a URL: https://mywebsite.com/tag/mykeyword with the same content from the original blog post. If you allow search engines to index your tags it could throw your website into “Google Dance”. What we mean by that is, one day the actual blog post will be ranking for “mykeyword” and another day your “tag” url will be ranking for the same keyword. This causes major fluctuations within the rankings and makes your rankings unstable, so it’s always better to either noindex the tags OR 301 them to the actual post or page that they are assigned to.
This WordPress redirect plugin has three redirect functionalities – “URL Redirects”, “Individual Redirects” and “Global Tag Redirects”:
URL Redirects are designed to be fast and simple to add. You do not need to have an existing page or post set up to add one. You just put the Request URL and the Destination URL and the plugin will redirect it. This type of redirect is great for fixing typos when a page was created, redirecting old URLs to a new URL so there is no 404, and to redirect links from an old site that has been converted to WordPress.
For pages/posts that already exist, the plugin adds a meta box to the edit screen where you can specify the redirect location and type. This type of redirect is useful for many things, including menu items, duplicate posts, or just redirecting a page to a different URL or location on your existing site.
This feature was created to eliminate one of the “duplicate issues” that wordpress creates by having the same content displayed via tags urls. By check-marking “Tag Redirection Setting” to “Enable Tag Redirection” it will redirect all of the tags to the post or page that they are assigned to. For example, let’s say Tag1 is assigned to mywebsite.com/blog/mypost. By enabling “Tag Redirects” it will automatically redirect mywebsite.com/tag/tag1 to mywebsite.com/blog/mypost
For best results use some form of WordPress Permalink structure. If you have other Redirect plugins installed, it is recommended that you use only one redirect plugin or they may conflict with each other or one may take over before the other can do its job.
This plugin is not compatible with WordPress versions less than 4.0. Requires PHP 5.2+.

“I have been a Client of Marketing1on1 for some time, they are knowledgeable, professional and most importantly deliver results! Anatoly is great to work with and has provided all that was discussed in the timeline he described for my industry, truly a great company and a great person to work with. Highly recommend Marketing1on1”
“Most people don’t believe a five star review or think it originated most likely by the friends or family of the business being reviewed, but I give a five star review to Marketing1on1 for SEO services without reservation or hesitation. The reason is simple: results. Marketing1on1 is the fourth small business SEO firm I’ve used over the course of five years. The others provided mixed results and one was even a con artist, IMO. Marketing1on1 staff have proven over a variety of circumstances that not only do their high-powered backlink combos work but they are safe and applied in such a nuanced and careful manner as to comport with Google’s potentially bad temper.”
“Marketing1on1 has done a fantastic job. I’ve done my fair share of seo efforts but could never get my domain anywhere near the first few pages of search results. Marketing1on1 was very kind and helped me with the decision process as well as a few tweaks to turn google into my friend. Marketing1on1 took the stress of seo off my hands and got me to the second place on a highly competetive keyword. Placing my own private business ahead of recognized brands! I am very greatful and will continue to use their superb service, you will be a fool not to do the same.”
Chrissy Ann Smith:
“Their work is excellent. They made sure to understand what I wanted and they over delivered on all their promises. Completely honest company who cares about their work. This is someone you can trust. Of all the companies I would use Marketing1on1 over anyone else.”
“These folks are on top of their game. They quickly adjust to the fluid changes of Google before most even realize.”
“These guys are awesome”
