- What do you know about the technical history of your site? Change of domains? Staging / dev server address? Subdomains? Find out as much as possible at the start of a project.
- Remember legacy https! Without a valid SSL cert on an old domain, you can’t redirect 301 requests.
- Look for redirect chains. You can use tools like Ayima’s redirect plugin, or Screaming Frog’s desktop tool.
- Chase up unlinked brand mentions. Go deeper by not just looking for brand, but rather look for product mentions, your CEO and other members of staff. You can use Talkwalker, Fresh Web Explorer or Ahrefs Alerts for this.
