Is there a limit to how many 301 (Permanent) redirects I can do on a site?

Google’s Matt Cutts answers: Is there a limit to how many 301 (Permanent) redirects I can do on a site? How about how many redirects I can chain together?

Other things to watch out for with chained redirects:

  • Avoid infinite loops.
  • Browsers may also have redirect limits, and these limits can vary by browser, so multiple redirects may affect regular users in addition to Googlebot.
  • Minimizing redirects can improve page speed
