Best Redirection Method..?
Posted 28 August 2003 - 04:00 AM
site "B" is a shadow site of site "A" and completely built in SEO point of view.
Site "B" is optimized well and achieving good ranks in almost all the search engines for the targeted keyphrases.
Now i need to send all the traffic coming to the site "B" to site "A" and i dont want the people to go to site "A".
The three ways i know to redirect are :
1. using 301 redirection
2. using Meta Refresh tag
3. using Java script refresh
I heard search engines penalize if we use Meta Refresh tag.
I dont want to be penalized by any search engine or any other consequences by any one.
What is the best and ethical method to redirect the sites.
I will be greatful to all if you can explain Technically which is better and why...???
Thanks & Regards

I would highly recommend that you do not have a site that is simply for the search engines.
Combine the elements of both sites and make one site, with no redirection that is great for your users AND the search engines. Otherwise, you are risking penalization and possible banning, once the search engines catch up with your "shadow" domain.

I have done what you have suggested.
But out of my curiostiy inorder to know how things work i posted this.
If you redirect B to A, with Google at least, it will start reading the stuff on A not B, and your rankings will be based on the information contained on A.
Will same thing happen even if i use refresh with out redirection. I guess it is a spam.
But i think google can not parse through java script, if it is true how google detects the redirects in java script. I am confused in this matter...
I have heard about server side redirections also...
will all these be considered spam.
Thanks and Regards

That is a real benefit for your visitors and allows them to choose the format they prefer.

Unfortunately, people can sometimes do things that are not an attempt to trick them, which may be perceived as trying to trick them.
This is why it's important to not attempt to get high rankings for 2 sites that have extremely similar content. As Scottie said, you might want to exclude one of them from the search engines, as necessary.

I am not expecting the good ranking for two sites.
The problem is this :
We have developed a similar site but with different content(related to the same theme as of our client site, it is just to show the client that we can do it).
Now we are getting good ranks for the site what we developed.
As both the sites share the same theme i thought of sending all the traffic we are getting to the site we developed.( as the site we developed is a dummy site)
Is there a way to do it ....
(As the content is different in both the sites i think it is not possible...)
But i just want to send the traffic to the developed site routed to the actual site...
Is there a way doing this so that it is not considered as spam...
I dont want to face any consequences later ....
If it is possible by ethical means i will do it else i will go and optimize the actual site...
Thanks & Regards
