    I have made few churn and burn websites very thin just 1 page and I am already ranking on top spots for majority of keywords that I was targeting. So these websites are for the services that I provide myself. Now I want to redirect them to my main website.

    I tried 302 redirects but after few days I saw that my ranking started to drop. I removed it and they started to come back up. This can be a coincidence but I have read alot, I never thought that 302 redirects can have such effects on the ranking.

    What do you people suggest? Should I do JavaScript redirect? put pages on churn and burn website like may main website(It will take a lot of time) or try 302 redirect again?
    or any trick that I can use.

    Thanks

    302 is a n0follow redirect... it will not send any power towards your moneysite, nor will a javascript redirect. If you're just looking to send the traffic to your moneysite those are good.

    the reason for which they went down in the SERP's is that even though a 302 is a soft redirect the crawlers from googl3 can't see the content on them and since they're 302'ed crawlers don't consider it a link. If your moneysite/page onto which you're redirecting is less optimized than the site you're 302'ing, the 302 domain will go down.

    They will go down if you 301 them but at least with the 301 redirect you're gaining something from them, the extra link juice to your moneysite.

    Just cloak the site. Bots/crawlers see as it is but visitors will be redirected. Stays longer on top and it`s easy!

    Cheers

    Just a suggestion, but what about just putting a massive link/ad on the site pointing towards your own site?

    302 redirect is when u actually want to redirect old one to new with out any purpose of getting any juice from old website as 301 redirect is commonly known for this sort of purpose.

    Thanks for the replies. I think lmxftw post explains pretty well. My Money website is very new with only onpage optimization, the only purpose of my money website is to receive traffic from my churn and burn websites and convert them into sales.

    So still what will be the best way to redirect traffic? Is it a big banner as ardley said? because if do 302 redirect I can not keep my ranking.

    I will definitely use 301 redirect after google tank my website not yet i think.

    It depends what your goal is. If your burn site is ranking for a keyword, then as I understand it, 301 to your main site and that site will then rank for the keyword.

    but there's probably risks that come with it. I just wondered why you suggested 302?

    interested to hear other people's opinions though.
