SEO - Googling Pimax keywords returns old forum links which 404

@Heliosurge not sure if some redirects can be added to resolve this as I don’t know what the equivalent working link is now.

As an example:

  1. Googled “Pimax Mas Headphone”:

https://www.google.com/search?sxsrf=ACYBGNQw_uQ61oA5MbQiQQuKuiESQgAI5g%3A1578494402862&ei=wukVXuSgNNuD8gKUh4v4Cg&q=pimax+mas+headphone&oq=pimax+mas+headphone&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0i71l8.158636.158844..159029...0.3..0.0.0…0…1…gws-wiz.Tx_nJyVyPhw&ved=0ahUKEwjkiabxnfTmAhXbgVwKHZTDAq8Q4dUDCAs&uact=5

  1. Top link is: https://forum.pimaxvr.com/t/this-is-what-pimax-needs-for-the-mas/22304

  2. Click this link to get 404

Not sure. @PimaxQuorra might be able to forward it to a team member.

Just checked further and all that should be needed to fix this is a domain redirect from forum.pimaxvr.com -> community.openmr.ai for all requests to forum.pimaxvr.com

The rest of the path can be left unchanged, no complications like URL Rewrites necessary.

So this is 404: https://forum.pimaxvr.com/t/this-is-what-pimax-needs-for-the-mas/22304

But this link works: This Is What Pimax Needs For the MAS

@PimaxQuorra hope this makes sense?

Edit - the system automatically reformats the second link, but it’s same except that the domain is community.openmr.ai

Maybe posting this might help with the google search. I edited in the Openmr https info.

Bumping this, I appreciate it is CNY but 21 days later, nothing has been fixed?

I know there are other priorities but most companies will try and solve this within 24-48 hours because it looks very bad on the company. Please understand that the whole internet is filled with broken 404 Pimax links :frowning:

For example, on Issue Trackers on other companies’ websites - now everything linking to Pimax looks dead. There might even be a few people who could be mistaken into thinking that Pimax has ceased trading as a company…

Hello Octofox,

We doubt that, there’s bug with the link again. Been informed our web developer on this issue.
Sorry for causing any inconvenience mate.
Will fix it ASAP.

Have a nice day.

Cheers,

Good news, thanks for chasing it up.

Not a problem for me at all, because I know the new URL is https://community.openmr.ai/ and I can always adjust the URL myself to access any broken links.

But most people outside this forum will not know that, and those are the people you need to consider :wink:
