I have implemented 200! redirect in our site to render the page on hosted on https://children.wpengine.com/live/ as if it is in the same domain when a user visited https://www.parent.com/children/live
This is the redirect rule in _redirects file
/children/live/* https://children.wpengine.com/live/:splat 200!
However, after 2 weeks the site has been published, the sites still not appearing on search engine (both Google and Bing). How is this 200! redirect affect SEO and search engine ability to crawl the webpages?
On Google search, I get something like this:
The https://children.wpengine.com/live/ is hosted on WordPress and we have confirmed it should works fine. On Google Search Console, I am not able to request indexing for https://www.parent.com/children/live/ and their bot is not able to crawl the page and received 500 status error instead.
Indexing request reject on Google Search Console because the site returned 500 status error
Let me know if you need the actual site URL addresses to help me with this
