Is there a limit to how many page redirects I can have?

I'm standing up a new database and migrating a site from database A to database B in AEM There are some architecture changes in the site, and I want to redirect as many dead pages in database A to substitute pages in database B for the first couple of months that database B is live. Is there a limit in AEM to the number of redirects that can be in place at any one time? Many thanks for any information you can share.

Hi @MarkECis,

 

I don't think so there is any limit to the number of redirects in a site, however there are factors and solutions that you should consider before implementing this.

 

These can be configured in AEM Publisher, Dispatcher or at CDN.

Please go through this page to consider your options - https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-learn/foundation/administration/url-redir...

 

However, from personal experience point of you, in most of the projects, we have been doing re-directs at Dispatcher level and would strongly recommend to not have 1-1 mapping between the old and new redirects as with large number of redirects it becomes difficult to manage, try to find the rules for these re-directs. Find the examples here - https://adobe-consulting-services.github.io/acs-aem-commons/features/redirect-manager/subpages/manag...

 

Thanks,

hi @MarkECis 

There is no limit of redirection. But keep in mind that more than two redirect have impact on SEO. Because 301 is indexed by google.

Though Google will follow more than one and suggests 2. Maximum 3. So you could be okay with your plan. Short video on maximum redirect

I had similiar concern like you because we are migrating near about 1 million pages from wordpress,zoomla to AEM. However we have planned one redirect (301) from legacy url to new AEM url.
