    Is there any tool or way to find out if a competitor is boosting their site with 301 redirects?

    won't that just check if the site you enter is redirecting to another? what about if you're looking to see if another site is redirecting at that one?

    Easy, use a backlink checker and manually check some links, focus on what appears to be homepage links (plain homepage url).

    Does that mean kill all the sites out there that changed their brand and redirected all their old pages to their new brand or company name as well? No they won't patch it cause there are a ton of companies that use this. Stores that you shop at everyday have used a 301 for one reason or another, so no it will not be patched.
