This tool will help you to detect the exact headers that a specific URL generates. In Search Engine Optimization this can be especially important for directory listings that use a "jump" URL or redirect cgi to track the number of people who click on a listing. Often times these programs will generate a 302 Found header response, which is used to indicate a temporary redirect. This has been known to cause problems in the past with certain search engines, and can lead to "page hijacking". This problem does not occur if the script in question returns a proper 301 Moved Permanently response.
To check which headers are being returned by a given URL, enter the address in the box below.
