@flancian I've used canonical redirects in various situations, but this is the first time I'd heard of the term go links. On the fediverse, the preference is usually for a direct link to things as opposed to bouncing through redirects primarily due to associations with tracking. However, using redirects with a site under your own (or a community's) control is probably fine. There's a bit of an #indieweb presence on the fediverse that go links overlaps with too.
@cstanhope thank you! Adding it to my knowledge graph, will research later this week as I emerge from the days dominated by work :)
