Hi,

Question 1. Purchasing 3 or 4 target keyword friendly domain name and redirecting to existing domain name. Is that good or bad search engine strategy?

Question 2. What type of redirect i have to use to redirect a new domain, is it 301/ 302 redirect or meta redirect or any other special redirect?

Please Help

Welcome to HR forums Ramki hi.gif

You are barking up the wrong tree with this one. If you are buying multiple domain names and redirecting them then that is not a good long term plan, unless the domains are typos, mispellings etc, of your brand name Buying them for SEO reasons is not going to do you any good..

Hi OldWelsh,

Thank you very much for your warm welcome cheers.gif My question is, how to redirect a new domain without penalised by search engine. For old & descently rank domain name we use 301 redirect. For new domain name what type of redirect we have to you?

If you're redirecting a new domain, a 301 would be best.

Still, as OWG said, it's not going to help you. Keyworded domains for the sake of the keywords in them haven't given any significant advantage for a long time now.

Is this still true? Is there any advantage to buying a new domain which includes keywords I want to use for some of my product ( ecommerce ), then parking it on my main domain name and redirect it to the category where the product are?

Example: I have an electronics store and have a radio category, would it benefit me to buy a domain name with 'radio' in it, park it on my main domain and then redirect it to the radio category?

You should buy domains to protect your trademarks, not for search engine advantage.

If it's redirected, it basically doesn't exist, so no, there would be no advantage.
