    A redirect chain occurs when there is more than one redirect between the initial URL and the destination URL. When a URL is redirected, it should have a single 301 redirect in place. Most redirect chains happen inadvertently for one of two reasons: Reason #1: Redirect chains are built over time.

    A 301 redirect is a rule that we set within our HT access file that ensures that users are redirected to the correct page.
