🌟Peakplex

“The plugin’s name could not be better. It really is simple to do 301 redirects. For example, if you modify the URL of one of your pages, then you can take the old URL and redirect it to the new one. Not only can this keep some SEO value, but it’s good for user experience as well.”

🌟WPKube

“I like this plugin because: You can quickly create 301 redirects without leaving your WordPress dashboard. It makes it much easier to manage your existing 301 redirects. It’s just plain easier for beginners than digging around the .htaccess file.”

This was my go-to plugin for 301 redirects, but with the latest versions, it's full of bugs. There's no overall save button anymore, and if you delete (and confirm deletion) a redirect then reload the page, the redirect is back. If you change a redirect and click the "update" button next to the redirect, then leave and go back, the change is reverted back. It's useless this way.

Simple 301 Redirects has provided me a lot of value in the past. Thankful for all the years. But... Now it is just a Marketing Tool for BetterLinks by WPDeveloper. I can't blame @scottnelle and WPDeveloper for the sale (or whatever transaction happened) but the plugin is bloated with promotion for Betterlinks and worse, does not work out of the box anymore while the "Redirection" plugin does. So will have to migrate dozens of websites to an alternative. :-s

I had this plugin on all my sites, but since BetterLinks bought it, it became a piece of bloated junk.

As its name says, this is a really simple redirection plugin. It does not track 404 errors on your site (which you probably want to redirect). It does not allow you to group, search and filter redirects. It does not allow you to set the HTTP status code. It does not give you rules to process query strings. There are much better options for a free redirection plugin. I have no idea why this plugin has so many active installs anyway.
