Description from store The all-in-one redirect path analyzer. HTTP Headers, Rel-Canonicals, robots.txt, link power, trust and risk analyzed, too! Perform advanced, comprehensive and most important correct analysis of links, redirects, and REL-canonicals. Use this extension for your SEO analysis, On page SEO, Off page SEO, competitor analysis and more. See instantly if a hop if the page is blocked in robots.txt or X-Robots-Tags, has NOINDEX/NOFOLLOW tags on it or other technical issues like Bot-specific blocking. You can also see all cookies that are placed on each redirect hop. You can see the strength of each link and redirect page and analyze “LRT Power*Trust” (Power like Google PageRank and Trust like “Trust Rank” for each redirect hop. Very soon you will be able to see the Link Detox Risk® for each hop in the redirect path, thus avoiding that you redirect a Google penalty to your site without knowing where it’s coming from. This extension was built to replace all other “partial solution” extensions for redirects, canonicals, search engine indexation and HTTP header logging. Frankly each of those available did only a part (sometimes even wrong or incomplete), so we decided to build it right. Having “LRT Link Redirect Trace” as an all-in-one solution to replace all other extensions means you get the full picture on every redirect. Test us in parallel to whatever you’re using and you’ll be surprised what you find, or better – what the existing extensions hid from you. Full Description Link redirection is a process where one URL gets forwarded to another URL. If a strange domain is redirecting to you, you should check this case in more detail and find out if this is a valuable website or if it is harming you. Are looking for an efficient way to track redirects and headers while you’re browsing? We built an All-In-One browser extension to help you trace any redirect that you can think of. Enter Link Redirect Trace. Redirect tracing is something that everyone in Online Marketing and SEO should care about. A typical backlink profile usually includes redirects from other websites. There are several kinds of redirects, and each of them passes a different amount of Link Juice to Google. The Link Redirect Trace extension allows you to check if your redirects are SEO-friendly or if they harm your website, by showing you: •“standard” redirects in the HTTP header such as 301, 302, 303, 307, FAKE 307 and soon 308; •Javascript redirects; •single and multiple META Refresh redirects (also shows the refresh interval in the trace, i.e. "5 sec"); •Rel-Canonical redirects: unique and multiple HTML HEAD Rel-Canonical and HTTP Header Rel-Canonical; •Alert about blocking of Major Search Engines, or ALL bots; •Alert about broken Rel-Canonical targets; •View LRT Power*Trust for every link redirect hop – an SEO metric that allows you to determine the power and trustworthiness of any link; •Analyzes robots.txt for every redirect hop; •Analyzes HTML <head> NoIndex, NoFollow per redirect hop; •Analyzes the HTTP header X-Robots Noindex, Nofollow, NoArchive; •Views full HTTP headers received for advanced users and developers; •Shows cookies set for each redirect hop – understand those affiliate ad links; •Highlights NoFollow links on the pages you browse; •Detects if a redirect is cached by your browser and allows to cache-bust and get the real results from the server; •Measures the time of a redirect hop and it shows you which redirect or URL shortener slows down user experience. Here are some of the things you can use the Link Redirect Trace plugin for: •check and find problems in your On page SEO •check and find problems in your Off page SEO (incoming links) •check your competitor’s links •check your affiliate links – understand who’s setting which cookie •understand the full redirect chain and reduce the hops if possible for faster load times •check your links after a website migration or redesign •check if a shortened URL points to a dangerous website •trace a hacker website redirect •track links from advertising and affiliate networks If you want to test us, go install the “single solutions” that we all improve upon and fully replace. Then go test us side-by-side and let us know what’s missing at [email protected] •HTTP Headers https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/http-headers/mhbpoeinkhpajikalhfpjjafpfgjnmgk (an extension only for HTTP headers, useful for developers, but missing the “SEO angle”) •Redirect Path https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/redirect-path/aomidfkchockcldhbkggjokdkkebmdll (nice extension, but doesn’t incorporate any of the other aspects, nor does it combine redirects with rel-canonicals, indexation and other advanced combinations and special cases) •Seerobots https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/seerobots/hnljoiodjfgpnddiekagpbblnjedcnfp (doesn’t use canonicals at all, the last update in 2013) •Canonical https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/canonical/dcckfeohihhlbeobohobibjbdobjbhbo (started out nice, but we found out it doesn’t even support HTTP Headers, nor handles special cases, blocking, etc.) Warning: if you decide to install those extensions above, sometimes 3 years outdated, then you will NOT get the full functionality that “Link Redirect Trace” provides, especially not the strength, trust and risk analysis for each link. We listed the above to inspire you to benchmark us, challenge us and give us feedback on particular cases that we might have missed, because we think each of the above did a great job at the time, but don’t help enough for the big picture or may be outdated by now. ##### If you need help or have feedback we have a peer support group on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1995307584064207/ ##### BETA 0.8.5 release updates: •Feature: Support for the new “Shortlink” feature that shows certain short links that can be seen as another type of REL-Canonical as well by search engines; •Feature: Canonicals are now also shown in the tooltip and app icon for even more efficient diagnosis; •Speed improvements; •Bug fixes: edge case problems with robots.txt, caching and clipboard to excel export function fixed. BETA 0.9.0 release update: •Save screenshot feature: we added a “Save screenshot” button that allows you to capture complex redirect chains and share with your co-workers quick and easy. BETA 0.9.1 release update: •Screenshots fixed for 4k displays BETA 0.9.2 release update: •Improved handling for Fake 307s read more about the 307s that "are a lie by Chrome" http://cemper.academy/courses/link-redirect-trace-quick-start/lectures/1295468 BETA 0.9.3 release update: •More Improved handling for Fake 307s and Real 307 that were detected as fake sometimes BETA 0.9.4 release update: •Added a new metric that shows the number of backlinks for every page.

  • (2020-04-12) Tim: Very useful extension! Helped me track down a problem I was having where Chrome was randomly redirecting my omnibox queries to Yahoo but I couldn't figure out how or why. Using this I was able to track down what was happening behind the scenes and eventually remove the offending extension named "Ratings Preview for YouTube". Thank you! That problem was driving me nuts. I removed the offending extension and problem solved!!
  • (2020-04-04) Trevor Jones: Brilliant
  • (2020-03-29) Rodrigo Gomez: muy buena
  • (2020-03-09) justAguy y: I love it. I will recommend it to my peers as well. Would be absolutely perfect if we had some more freedom to configure stuff, like letting us ignore certain use cases such as protocol change counting as a redirect. For instance, sometimes during my testing I don't mind if 'http://domain.com' redirects to 'httpS://WWW.domain.com'. Obviously the same site/domain, just a different protocol/prefix. Will continue using it tho, Thanks!
  • (2020-02-07) Daniel Felix: Simple and easy tool.
  • (2020-01-30) Dominic lamote: great tool
  • (2020-01-16) Shawn Graven: Looks nice and gives me the information I want! Now to see if I can get it to work with files!
  • (2019-12-27) Krystallen: I am an old school "Hacker", from the 80ies. I was a kid then and could do things with computers that adults can not. That includes myself now as well =). I've used this extension for years now, and I KNOW what browsers. I'm the guy you ask "what the F happend to my computer???" I have a top 10 list of the best/must have extension for any system. ** This extention is sharing the number 1 spot extention you MUST HAVE, no matter what browser you are using. "Adblock Plus" is the other number 1. (The real one) ** Let me tell you why - You can be a normal user and have 0 interested/knowhow about internet = it works automaticly to protect you. (No, 90% of the extensions who claims that, does not) - Power Users can use this without worrying about the stuff they dont know. (A poweruser is a normal user who understand when they dont understand something, and DONT ACCEPT STUPID STUFF TO CLICK!) - System admin users: The extension gives you full control of what it does and does not do. It doesnt block any system logs from logging it. - This extension does EXACTLY what it says in the info here! There is no hidden code, executions, heartbeats or sync, in the base code of this extension. - The extension doesnt block you from anything. It simply protects you from getting fooled to get redirected to an adress that Chrome, Edge, Winupdate, etc. DID NOT SEND YOU. ---------------This is by far, the best "extenson" for any webbrowser------------- I use Commodo Dragon, which is "Chrome", but developed by Commodo, who updates it, and decides what features etc it should have. Note: Comodo Dragon Brower has its own redirect protection extention. Which it turns off automaticly when installing this extension. This extention isnt doing that. The comondo Dragon Browser is, because it considers this extension superiour its own redirect function. Oh, its free. If you only want to donate to one extention in your life. Pick this one or Adblock Plus. Mr creator. You have my respect. "Load "Krystallen Signature", 8 ,1" " 10 Print "*,8 ,1" " 20 Run" " 30 Goto 10" " 40 End"

  • (2019-10-26) Chad Carlson: Yikes! Using this extension, has blown my mind as to how much data is really being used by different companies.

  • (2018-11-14, v: BETA) Carlos Badillo: redirects and time outs
    All I want, all I give a damn about is a way to go to my favorite web sites without interruption or interference. This extension doesn't seem to do that because even when I hit 'help' in the upper right I was timed out. Is there anything that just blocks any attempt to redirect or slows me down till I'm automatically timed out?
  • (2018-08-07, v: BETA) Issue with Jira
    Still bugs when trying to connect with Jira. Installed the Version v. Pity, otherwise a great extension. Please check again!
  • (2018-04-12, v: BETA) Todd Breiholz: Panel is cropped
    When I click on the icon in the toolbar to see the results I nearly always get a cropped version of the panel. If I continuously click it will eventually show the whole panel.
  • (2017-12-27, v: BETA) Issue with JIRA cloud
    When detecting the redirects with JIRA cloud during login it create an error that prevents you from logging on. After disabling the extension this resolved the login error. Great extension, but we use JIRA to mange all of our projects and tasks so please let us know when and if this issue is or will be resolved. Nice work overall.
