I recently changed my website from static html to WordPress, and in doing so I’ve been redirecting all of my former and nonexistent pages with my .htaccess file whenever Google shows me a crawl error. I’ve been successful in redirecting all crawl errors until today. My old index.html is throwing a crawl error and when I use:
Redirect 301 /index.html http://www.fredsfab.com
… I get this from my browser:
Too many redirects occurred trying to open “www.fredsfab.com”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.
I have since removed Redirect 301 /index.html http://www.fredsfab.com from my .htaccess file and will just live with the crawl error if I can’t get this resolved. But I’m thinking somebody knows how to solve this and if so, I’d really appreciate it if you’d let me know how. Thanks in advance!
