Why do the links I add to my Google site say that you are being redirected? not right to link? 0 Recommended Answers 3 Replies 18 Upvotes

When I add links to my Google site and you click on them, a Redirect Notice opens. Why won't the link just simply go right to the site rather than have that notice? Can I turn it off?

All external links go via Google's URL redirector to protect visitors on your site not arriving at malware, phishing or hacked sites. When you do this from the published version of the site (not the editor) the redirect is automatic and almost not noticeable. When you sue the link via the editor it's a manual redirect - this does not happen for viewers.

You cannot turn this off, it's part of the built in security of new Google Sites.

That's not true.

It takes people to a page that looks like this



And does not forward automatically.  It just sits there until they click the link.

A way around this used to be to use Google's URL shortener but Google recently shut that down

You do not see that when you try the link from the published site, e.g. go to one of our pages https://www.steegle.com/google-sites/classic-deprecation-timeline#h.p_cRwEIa-mNnew and then use the Updated roadmap for classic and new Google Sites - January 28, 2019 link and you will see it goes to the link without a further click.
