    Hi,

    This really is a wonderful place. So thanks in advance for helping me figure this one out... Will google penalize or sandbox if and when you turn the URL indexed to a 301 redirect... So instead all organic visitors redirect to CPA Offer?

    Thanks in advance.

    There is a plugin for this if you use Wordpress.

    This plugin is exactly what you're looking for.

    If you happen to be using wordpress, use the plugin above. If you're making a landing page and its plain PHP, what I like to do is have a link with the anchor text for the product linked to the page someone is looking at. Google will then give your page more credit, because you're linking to your page with the product name.

    However, before the page loads, look at http_referer. If the http_referer just so happens to be YOUR site ... it means that someone just clicked on the product link from your own website. Only in this case, do a simple redirect to your affiliate.

    Google won't see it unless they're loading the pages of your site and forging a http_referer variable that says the bot is coming from another page on your site (which they don't).

    Code:
    if(strstr($_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"],$_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]) && !strstr($_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"],"google"){
    header("Location: http://youraffiliate.com/url.html"]]);
    }
    
    I like to stick that "and google isn't in the referrer" code in there because Google sometimes loads your site with your url embeded in its url ... and it causes the redirect to fire.

    I use this just fine on many of my sites and never had an issue with it.

    So I will or will not lose ranking if I do a 301 redirect to a CPA offer?

    There is no 301. 301 is a code sent to Google that tells Google to pass pagerank to a new page.

    You need to cloak your link so that Google doesn't see it. There is no need for a 301 or 302 or any other header code to be given to define what your redirect is -- just do a redirect (Google won't see it if you do it right).

    You won't lose ranking and you will keep all the PR on your website at the same time.
