I recently changed the URLs of my articles and they are now 301 redirected to the new URL format. However, the AMP equivalent version of those articles rel="canonical" tag still links to the old version of the URL (now a 301 page).

Is this ok?

Ie, given <link rel="canonical" href="$SOME_URL"> , can $SOME_URL be a redirected page?

In the official documentation, they only referr to a 200 Ok absolute URL, so, in this case, and to be completely sure there is no problem with a 301 redirect URL, I'll use the URL Inspection Tool (Google Seach Console) to verify Google can access to the final URL.

You can also use test live URL option if you did some changes to the URL and want to check them right ahead. If everything is correct you should see 0 error in your GSC AMP's report.

  • Hiya Emirodgar this doesn't necessarily answer my question as I'm not seeing any AMP pages on desktop. Just questioning if I can have a 301 redirected page in the link. However, this is still actually super interesting/valuable info. Thanks for sharing. – pedroteixeira07 Oct 18 at 9:39
