How to increase speed - too many redirects?

#1
Hi - I did a google speed test on my website and it's getting a 48 score. One item says I have too many redirects:

Curious how I can fix this? Not sure why there are so many redirects... Thanks for any help you can provide.

The only URL you should test, is your canonical version, being https://www.cigarpass.com. All others are meant to redirect to that version. Stick with testing it only, which gives you 68/100.

Pagespeed is not a good tool to use, as its not accurately reflecting what your website is really doing. Use https://www.webpagetest.org instead, which will give you a far better idea of your actual pages performance across the world, browsers and device types. Fix those issues, not what page speed recommends.
