Redirection Warning


Someone ‘please’ help me find a way to fix this redirection warning thing. I’ve looked, read and tried every suggestion to no avail.

INFO: Page fetched successfully
INFO: 22 metatags were found
INFO: twitter:card = summary tag found
INFO: Card loaded successfully
WARN: this card is redirected to


The card loads fine in the validator but you have

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1; url=" />

so your site will always automatically redirect to google


Hi, thanks for the reply. Don’t know what your reply means or how to fix it, but regarding my query - though the validator says all is fine, when I go to make a twitter post, I still get the gray box thing. That is what I’m trying to fix.

On your above suggestion, if this is also something i need to fix, can you advise me how.

Thanks for your help.


To get the card to show up properly, try tweeting a link to your site so that the URL is the last thing in the tweet, and it doesn’t have any other attached media

to fix the redirect, just removing
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1; url=" /> from your code should do it


Hi, I did as you suggested - tweeting a link to my site, and I read thru the getting-started page. I also changed twitter:description and twitter:image to og:description and og:image, but still get gray box and this - WARN: this card is redirected to I think this is the problem. Though I’m sure there’s many other possibilities.

Any other suggestions etc. (besides mine - throwing pc on ground!!).

Thanks for your replies


Ok, I got it resolved. It’s as simple as adding a / after your site url when tweeting with one’s url in the tweet.
