Some Redirects Work Fine and Others Not Working

One of the popular questions regarding SEO Redirection plugin usage is, why some redirects work fine and others not working?

The most reason for this is that you are trying to redirect a page that is not belonging to your site, suppose that you have a site newsite.com and have the SEO Redirection installed on it, what will happen if you added a redirect through newsite.com control panel for the page www.google.com/search to newsite.com, unfortunately, this will not work, because you cannot control other sites from your site, you cannot redirect the traffic on google.com to your site, so all the redirect sources must be starting with your domain name.

If you have an old site and want to redirect links to the new site, you must install the plugin on the old site to be able to redirect links from it.
