    Hey guys, here is my problem:

    I have a cobrand site with thousands of pages indexed on DomainA with SponsorA. The site is doing well on SEs but the sales are shit so I decided to 301 redirect DomainA to SponsorB for a few days. The sales were great during those days so I want to stick with SponsorB for now.
    I just dont know what to do next cause I dont want to ruin DomainA rankings in google:

    a) 301 redirect to SponsorB
    b) 301 redirect to DomainB (other domain of mine where is a landing page for SponsorB)
    c) build a site on DomainA for SponsorB (what will happend with those thousands of pages.... will go 404?)

    Dunno which one is the best in the long run, TIA for your help...

    Best practice is to maintain the 301 permanent redirect.

    Pardon my ignorance but 301 permanent redirect would mean that the site has been moved permanently to new location... so can I have the redirect done to first sponsor for few days and then have the redirect to new sponsor after few days.. (Will this get my domain banned... )
