So what you're saying is that you could hold someones rankings ransom with this tactic?
If that's the case I dunno if you should post about it mate, the less people that know the better IMHO. Be interesting to see if anyone else has had similar experience though, I only ever work with 301's so don't have any experiences of 302 redirects.
I have no clue who claimed that 302 keep link juices while 301 flows it, I beleive that both do.
Anyway, your case proofs that "302 doesn't flow pagerank" is BS. if you want to have a look here , you can see that a 302 was included in a manual spam action notification : http://www.seroundtable.com/google-manual-action-302-links-18727.html
302 will pass link juice but less then 301 and meta redirect will pass no juice.
Thank you! Completly forgot about the meta redirect, will try it out!
Two things do not pass juice:
- Redirection through a disallowed folder (disallowed by robots.txt)
Anything else will pass juice, if you are technical enough you should know that all servers will send 302 header by default when you do a server side redirection, Google found out quickly that they have to treat 302 this like 301 as 90% of people that used 302 did not know the difference and they just used it because it is the server default
In the link which ficfroc its mentioned that nofollow links can also pass a penalty, which imo is very believable.
But the redirection through the disallowed folder looks really interesting, I will do some research on that, thanks!
