After playing around with Rank Math on our dev site, we ran the set-up of Rank Math on our live site today. Everything went smoothly, including an import of meta data from our old All-In-One SEO plug-in, as well as the import of 1,480 redirects from the WP Redirections plug-in.
The scrolling log file recording the import as it processed said that the import of all 1,480 redirects was successful, and Rank Math proceeded to deactivate the Redirections plug-in. However, when I visit the Redirects page within Rank Math, none of the imported 301s appear. We deleted and reinstalled Rank Math and ran through the whole set-up process a 2nd time, but got the exact same results in the end…import log says redirects migrated over successfully, yet there are none on the Rank Math Redirects screen.
We then ran an import from the Imports/Exports screen rather than trying via the set-up wizard, but same result again.
Finally, to rule out that the problem stemmed from the sheer # of 301s we’re trying to import, we cleared out the WP Redirections plug-in, then populated it with only FIVE 301s, and then performed the import of just those five into Rank Math. Unfortunately, none of the “successfully imported” redirects actually appear in Rank Math.
By the way, the import of all the meta data from the All-In-One SEO plug-in worked great…it’s just the 301s that won’t migrate over properly.
This is disappointing as we’re excited to get onboard with Rank Math, but dread the prospect of having the manually enter 1,480 redirects by hand into Rank Math (and, why can’t we import from a well-formatted CSV?!)
Any help or suggestions you can provide would be very appreciated.
