High This Hint is very important, and definitely warrants attention. Issue This Hint represents an error or problem that needs to be fixed.

AMP Page URL is Redirect (3XX)

This means that the URL in question is an AMP Page URL, which is a Redirect (3XX).

Why is this important?

If an AMP Page URL redirects, search engines may end up on the wrong page, which means it may not get indexed properly or appear in search results.

What does the Hint check?

This Hint will trigger for any AMP Page that returns a 3XX HTTP header response.

Examples that trigger this Hint

Consider the AMP URL: https://example.com/page-a/amp/

The Hint would trigger for this URL if it had a 301 (Permanent Redirect) header response:

HTTP/... 301 Moved Permanently


Similarly, URLs with other 'redirect' statuses will trigger the Hint (i.e. any other 3XX response).

How do you resolve this issue?

AMP URLs need to be accessible in order to be indexed. In this case, the AMP URL redirects to another URL, which may be the incorrect one. Even if it is the correct one, the redirect adds an additional 'hop' for search engines, which may cause them to ignore the AMP page or not include it in search results.

To rectify, you would need to ensure that the <link rel="amphtml"> tag is pointing to the correct (i.e. equivalent) AMP page, and ensure that this page is fully accessible to search engines and users alike, returning a 200 HTTP response.
