How Will I Know If My Site Is Banned?
Posted 21 February 2004 - 01:54 PM
One redirect was to the Spanish version of the site, which had the domain name www.CRNoticias.net, and I redirected that to the Spanish subdirectory page
I also had a redirect for a "special issue" page I had called www.CRDecision2004.net, which redirected to another subdirectory page in CRNews.net, which was
The redirects were done with a window script.
FWIW, I wasn't trying to do anything malicious, I didn't know the redirect would be bad for search engines until I was told earlier today, and immediately removed the redirects.
How serious was this transgression? How will I knew if my site www.CRNews.net was banned or not?
I can see that if I search in Google under my domain name www.CRNews.net, there is one of my pages indexed there. What does that tell you?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as banning would of course be a disaster for me.

With that said you are not going to get banned for redirecting as you were. However, IMO if those other two domains are hosted in their own environment, you would do better to set up 301 permanent redirects to the new locations you were redirecting them to. That way you are telling the search engines that these domains have changed to the new locations. Also any PR you have at the other two domains will get passed along to the new locations.

Actually, all three sites are hosted on the same webspace, ie they have the same IP numbers.
Is there any need for a 301 permanent redirect in that case?
