Testing Search Indexing Robots

Robot Following Meta Refresh 0?

This page is testing whether search indexing robots will properly follow the link when the META Tag has a Refresh Interval of 0 seconds. For more tests, see the Redirect Tests and the List of Robot Tests.

The META Refresh tag on this page contains a link to the page "", and that page is not linked to any other pages.

If you search for the unique term for this page (below) and find this page, the search engine robot indexes text on the redirect pages (which it probably should not). If search on the term (without the spaces) for the redirect target page and find it, the search engine robot indexes text on the target page properly.

Search Codes For This Page: RTest, RTest120, RTestProblem, RTestProblem120
