I was after some advice.
1 - how many 301 redirects is too many 301 redirects?
2 - if someone is searching for a term that throws a 404 page 50 or more times should there be a 301 redirect put in place. For example if Google Analytics shows that 50 or more people have navigated to "/aaasssdd/" - which does NOT exist - should a 301 be added to the rewrite to capture this?
1) I don't think you can really have too many redirects. However, it's good to have a good overview of them, so you don't end up with pages that have like 5 redirects before you get to the actual page.
2) If 50 people are navigating to a 404 page, then you should take a look at where those people are coming from. You can do this by checking the referrer.
It could be that a website has a link to you but it ends up in a 404 page. But it could also just be a bot that is hitting your 404 page a lot of times.
Most importantly, if you think that the redirect will help people find the content more easily, then add one! However, if it's just non-important traffic then I don't really see the need for a redirect.
