    Does anyone know of a way to find out what the url of the redirect webpage of a website is? For example, the redirect webpage where the website tells you that you are now leaving their website and going to a different website? Is there a tool online (preferably a free one) to find this information?

    You mean www.knowurl.com ?

    Or you want to make a custom exit page for your site, so that it warns the user that you are going to so and so page? I can make such a script if you want.

    Check out archive,org. It will show the old url if the page was redirected in the past.

    I'm not sure if you guys understood my question. What I mean is, in terms of inserting a backlink on the redirect page of a website, like some of the edu and gov redirect pages you are able to insert a backlink on... is there a way to find out what the url is of the redirect page of any edu or gov website? I already know about the list of edu and gov redirect pages that has been floating around but, I want to know how the people that created that list discovered the redirect pages in the first place. Is there a certain way to do this so I can find more redirect pages to insert a backlink on?

    If you mean tracking redirects like - you click an ad -> redirects to tracking link -> redirects to affiliate link -> redirects to offer

    I use a program called LinkDecloaker aka LinkHopper. It follows all the redirects and gives you a list.

    Thanks, guys. Yeah, that's what I did, W130SN. I typed that into Google and found a few more that weren't on that list. I'm curious. Why do you say that those redirect backlinks are worthless? Doesn't Google still index them, especially since they are d0f0ll0w links?

    Unless you are getting proper (not redirect links) .edu links from the likes of http://www.yale.edu/ or http://www.harvard.edu/ and .gov links from http://www.whitehouse.gov/ or http://www.usa.gov/ then they are just normal links and most are low value.

    Most .edu and .gov links have been hugely overrated, they are not as special as some people believe.
    (Unless of course, they are coming from premium/authority .edu/.gov sites like those listed above)

    Why waste time chasing them?
    You can just buy a load of edu and gov links off fiverr if you are desperate for them.

    Oh okay. Got it. One more question... if some of these edu and gov backlinks are on edu and gov sites that have high "Page Rank" like 4/10, 5/10, 6/10, 7/10, or even 8/10, but the backlinks aren't on the homepage of these high PR edu and gov sites (obviously), will the backlinks still pass some good link juice? In other words, on a high PR edu website that is 8/10, is the backlink on a that website worthless unless it's on the homepage of that website? I know the homepage would have the PR of 8/10 but, would the deeper pages on that website also carry the 8/10 page rank?

    Each page on a website carries its own PR. the internal pages are almost always less PR than the homepage. also the homepage can be pr8 but an internal page can have no pr.

    Download the SEObook free toolbar, it gives you the SEO stats you want to see for any page your on.

    Also from what people said in other threads these links are useless http://www.yumacountyaz.gov/redirect...YOUR_WEBSITE)/

    I have a massive list tho, PM me if you have a use for em'
