I want to change my web address to a different domain, and I have added 301 Redirect to my old site, but it still shows an error.

301 error

Here is the screenshot of Vercel: Vercel

and the CURL response is 301: CURL request

What shall I do to fix this error?

It is actuelly not an error. You are trying to fetch a home page with a 301 redirect on it and Google is telling you that you can not fetch it because it doesn't exist anymore.
You can now simply fetch the 301 targeted url (dlhairyashah.dev).

I checked your redirect and that works fine.

It is an error because Google very clearly instructs to initiate the 301 redirect from old site to new site, before attempting this verification. I agree it makes no sense as it's then trying to index a forwarded url...?

  • Can you please add a link to a google page that "very clearly instructs to initiate the 301 redirect from old site to new site"
