  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    You could redirect all those URLs to the homepage, it would be a safe and easy solution. Also, if those URLs have a pattern, you could try to redirect them using Regex, so you don’t need to create each redirection one by one.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    Thank you Alberto.
    Please confirm the redirecting to Homepage doesn’t harm Website SEO
    With Regards

    Hi Mohamed,

    You should not blindly redirect everything to the homepage. You should only redirect the relevant pages.

    For unrelated 404s, you should mark them as 410 or just ignore the 404s as they do not cause harm if real users are not seeing those 404.
