Using A Subdirectory To Hide Another Site
1 reply to this topic

I am an advertiser researching a community directory site to see if their traffic is what they say it is, and to figure out why they rank so high in google. I noticed that have another unrelated site redirecting to a subdirectory, and that site seems to get lots of traffic (checked on google ad planner). That site also looks to be one of those places you can go to buy an anchor link. There are also several URLs involved. My question is, is it deceptive to have that 2nd site hidden the main site, and are those traffic numbers counting towards the traffic this site is claiming they get? Also, if you have several urls connected, each possibly having these unrelated subdirectory sites within, is it the combined traffic that this directory site is telling me they get?

is it the combined traffic that this directory site is telling me they getWho knows? You will have to ask them what the traffic stats are and what the breakdown is.
What you should be looking at is whether the visitors to the directory are likely to be interested in your pages, because it doesn't really matter how much traffic it gets or where it "ranks" because none of the traffic will come your way if your page/site is not what they are after.
