    If I 302 my site to another domain for 2 weeks tops will my rankings drop?

    it is my understanding that 302 redirect in googles eyes in temporary so surely that means they shouldn't really penalise the rankings much?

    there is a good reason for me doing this - I keep getting limited from paypal for using the same domain. I wish to use a different paypal for a couple of week and generate some money to use to build another site and pay for Seo etc

    after losing nearly £7000 to paypal I can't afford to keep using the same domain and I don't want to 301 the domain because I still want that site to rank afterwards for other reasons.

    Why not just clone your site on the new domain or whatever and Noindex/Nofollow it?

    302 doesn't flow link juice, so it shouldn't take anything away from the source site.

    Theoretically no you should see no rankings drop. I doubt penalties pass via a 302, unless you leave it active for months. The problem is nothing else much should pass either, but maybe you don't care about that.
