Redirects OK with Google?

Postby nielloac » Fri May 05, 2006 5:10 pm

I am trying to understand the Google penalties for redirects. If for example, I sell widgets and my website is www.widgets.com and I buy the URL's for www.widgetsrus.com and www.sacramentowidgets.com and I redirect them to my site www.widgets.com, am I doing something that Google will penalize?

From what I understand if you're redirecting sites with duplicate content to a common URL (e.g. if www.abc.co.uk and www.def.com.au redirect to www.ghi.com) then google will see this as spamming and blacklist your site!

Hope this helps

Cheers

Forwarding vs Redirect

Postby nielloac » Fri May 05, 2006 7:07 pm

Is URL forwarding the same as a redirect? If not, is forwarding a URL a Google no-no?

Yeah, I believe URL forwarding and redirects are the same thing. Not 100% on that though. Possible that URL forwarding could be at the DNS...

Try Google, see what you come up with. Good luck.

url forwarding

Postby peterko » Sat May 06, 2006 7:32 pm

Hi there,

As far as I know url fowarding is OK for google. There is a lot of sites with alias names (e.g. alias.domainname.com) that is actually a forwarding, and those sites have pretty good google ranking.

Have a great day
