So I am sharing you the techniques or ways to eradicate the Redirect Status and make your indexing complete in Google.

How to fix Redirect Status to Complete Status?

Solution 1 : Use of a Forward Slash “/

This is a most important solution and 70% of the users have got their problem solved with this solution. So use the Forward slash at the end of the URL while submitting.

So for example you want to submit Travel Page link, in the box enter travel/ and then submit for indexing. Though I am assuming that your blog url is in the format http://www.yourblogurl.com
