If you notice that the Status for a crawled page isĀ Redirected,try the following,

  1. Just reverify that the link actually exists!. Just copy the complete url in the browser address filed and see if the webpage is loaded.
  2. If the url exists and still you get an error just check if the url is case-sensitive (Linux hosting url are case sensitive if .htdocs settings are not present to handle them).
  3. If your page is an index page (or default page) then you must have a trailing slash (/) at the end of the url or else you may face such a issue. I had recently notice the same issue, wherein after a page is submitted without a trailing slash the webmaster page keeps reloading in an endless loop and the page is not getting crawled.

If still you face the redirection issue check your .htdocs settings.
