Q: Is replacing external links bad for SEO?
A: While robots check pages for valuable content, if the destination site changes (resulting in broken links), it can lead to a reduction in rank.

Additionally, the plugin provides a URL filter to exclude trusted domains from the URL replacement process.
Q: Does this plugin increase page load time?
A: No, Redirection PRO implements a powerful cache system. The cache system stores loaded data from the destination URL for a certain period of time, reducing the need for repeated requests and enhancing performance. Furthermore, the plugin optimizes load timeouts on the server-side to minimize waiting times.

Furthermore, you can utilize this plugin to prioritize client safety and protect them from reaching unwanted destinations.

A: It’s important to note that this plugin can have an impact on your website’s SEO ranking. As such, consider using other practices to optimize your SEO instead of relying solely on external links.
