    Is there a way to tell if someone is 301 redirecting to your site.

    If someone wanted to do a negative seo campaign against you by 301 redirected a penalized domain to your domain is there a way to tell ?

    Re: Is there a way to tell if someone is 301 redirecting to your site.

    Hi Jim

    A few ways I can think of to check:
    1) Referrals in Google Analytics
    2) 3rd party tools (such as Majestic) that disclose inbound links
    3) Links to Your Site report in Search Console
    4) the "link:" command in the search box
    5) Crawl the suspected domain (if you know it) with a tool (such as Screaming Frog) and see what outbound links the domain has.

    1 - the redirecting page becomes the landing page's referrer. https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1009614

    3 & 4 - https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/55281

    SC is known to only sample, 3rd party backlink tools may take a while to update.

    By the time you do all of those, you should have a good feel. Not guaranteed, but a pretty good feel.
