WP-AvoideR

Description

When optimizing a website, Google´┐Ż Page Speed Insights or GTMetrix.com can display a poor ranking if there are too many redirects for a URL to the landing page.

If a visitor enters http://domainname.com in the browser, the visitor is redirected to httpS://domainname.com and finally lands on httpS://www.domainname.com. This double redirection is punished by numerous search engines.

This plugin examines the redirects and then issues a suggestion for a solution. By simply clicking on it, the plugin makes the necessary settings in the .htaccess file – including backup of the existing file.

The plugin itself is only 4kb in size.

I cannot believe so few people have downloaded this great plugin. Using GTMetrix, It has taken my Page from a B rating 84% to an A rating 96% and my Yslow form B 86% to an A 92%. This will no doubt also help improve SEO ranking with Google. I am so impressed with this little plugin I am going to make a donation and buy the people who made it a beer. The Plugin is simple to use and easy to understand. Many thanks for work and efforts guys.
