Google URL Inspection Tool Doesn't Handle Redirect HTTP Response Code

Google Redirect

Yesterday Google unveiled a nice number of useful new features in the URL inspection tool. One of those features was to show the HTTP response code of a URL. But did you know it doesn't show redirect HTTP response codes?

Dave Davies pointed this out on Twitter and I confirmed it by trying the tool on URLs I know are using a 301 redirect. The URL inspection tool simply does not show that code.

I suspect one day it might become a feature available in that tool but for now, it is not.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
