lots of 302 redirections google search console excluded URLs

by Maryam Beheshti   Last Updated September 14, 2018 15:04 PM - source

My client 302 redirected all the pages from http to https few years ago. All the http links are accessible in google search console as the excluded links. Should I do anything to get rid of the 302 redirections or it is ok to keep them as they are?

As @Emirodgar said, swap out the 302 for 301 redirects.

The 301 redirect is permanent, and tells search engines that the address of the web page has moved decisively and is not coming back, so the move should be taken seriously, and as soon as possible. The 302 redirect is temporary, and since search engines don't know where it's ultimately going to point or when, you're sending them a weak signal. Granted, longtime 302's may begin to be viewed as 301's eventually, but why take the chance?
