It is recommended to keep redirects on the site for at least a year

Google search engineer Harry Ilsh tweeted about saving redirects.

According to SEO, it is advisable to leave them for at least a year. This will help ensure that all signals are constantly being transmitted to the new URL. But even if after a year it is decided to delete the redirect, it is advisable for users to keep them forever. And it's not about a year since inception, but since their first Google crawl.

As a rule, redirects increase the page load time. So the recommendation to update URLs in your links and from other sites remains valid.
