    I have an asian music news and bollywood movies website

    I am going to be launching a new section which is for celebrity profiles within this entertainment sector, the advice i am looking for is if I i create a profile page with gallery etc... on our website for a musician lets call him Angel Singh if i then register the domain angelsingh do t i n f o (with permission from the artist to avoid copyright problems) and redirect that domain to mysite/AngelSingh would angelsingh do t i n f o domain rank on google? or is there another way to do this? or is it just best to leave it to mysite/AngelSingh ?

    Home Page:
    Redirected domain, page will not rank in Google.

    I would recommend doing mysite/AngelSingh

    1. If the redirected domain uses a 302 redirect, yes it can rank (and I've seen cases of this)
    2. If the redirected domain uses a 301 redirect, no it will not rank


    It's important to know what the different kinds of redirects are.


    Only a 301 redirect will give link juice to the target of the redirect.
