A while ago I started a thread whether a 302 from a spammed site could hurt the rankings of the targeted money site. Everybody said that I shouldn´t worry since it is just temporarily it won´t have a negative effect. I tried it out and after a few days the ranking dropped for all KW´s. The drops were not huge (3-6 positions), but since all the main KWs were in the Top 10, most of them Top 5, it is a big difference being #4 or #8. I don´t think it´s a g00gle dance, because 1.) the site has been slowly but steady moving up the last month and 2.) all KW´s were effected. Usually a google dance effects only a few KW´s and 1 or 2 positions max. in this niche, so I never experienced something like that in this niche before. Also, for one of the KW´s I was ranking #2 for months, even that dropped to #7. a little background: my MS is 1 year old and the comp. is medium. the spammed site is only 2 weeks old. I checked whether some big links were deleted in the last few weeks, but this wasn´t the case. When checking the links I double checked, that it was really a 302 and not 301. I noticed though that the BL´s and a 301, which are pointing to the redirected spammed site, were listed as BL´s for my MS. Also the CF and TF rose significantly after the 302, because the most powerful links came from the spammed site. How can that happen if the link juice is not flowing through a 302? 2 Days after the drop I removed the 302. After another 2 days my MS recovered (KW´s are in avereage 1 position lower than they used to be), while the spammed rose a few positions to the 1st page. I know that in theory the 302 couldn´t effect my MS, but imo there is enough evidence that it did. I will run a few case studies in the future and post my results if they are significant. What do you think about this? has any of you made some similar experiences?
