How to check if it is active and search engines ready?
To check whether a URL redirects to another URL, you can use many tools available on the Internet. Among the most commonly used are: redirect-checker.org and Google Sheets and a specially prepared script for this purpose.
We can also check it manually by typing the URL into the browser. If we are taken to a new address instead of the outdated page, it means that a redirect was performed. This way, however, we will not check what type of redirection was used and whether the transition to the new URL is not done through a so-called redirect chain.
