Geo Redirects

When we index the Entire Internet we come across a lot of domain redirects. I.e. when you visit cottonon.com.hk and it automatically sends you to cottonon.com/HK/ like shown in the screenshot below –

Previously we’d “lose” that link between the sites and just say we found the results at cottonon.com. That is changing today with the introduction of the “Redirects” tab on reports –

This data is also fully exportable on the ‘Export’ tab of the report as TSV that lists all of the sites in your reports and all of the sites that those sites redirect from. The benefit of this data is it helps to find geo-localized versions of sites.
