Very fast and accurate. I'm building a new site with a structure that differs from the company's old site, so re-direction will be a big issue. In all my testing, this plugin does exactly what I'd do manually. Even if I manually set up some re-direction on the server to cover some broad rules and maybe run a little faster, this plugin will be a huge time saver and great backup. I'm seriously impressed.

WP 404 Auto Redirect to Similar Post is by far one of my must-have plugins for WordPress. Not only is SEO-friendly, but also provides the option to automatically redirect users in a specific page or in the homepage in case a blog post or page doesn't exist. Keep up the good work! I hope we will see future updates.

This plugin is doing a brilliant job, and you can see how much work and refinesse went into it — thank you so much!

301 Redirecting a 404 page to the home page was disputed by several SEOs as the home page is not always related to the page that was deleted. However, this plugin solves the issue by redirecting the 404 pages to the most relevant page. Just in case, there is no page that is closely related to the deleted page, the plugin gives you an option to redirect to the home page or a custom page or show a 404 page. So, it's ideal for both groups of SEOs; those who support 404 redirections to the home page and those who don't.
