    I thought google hated metarefreshes and wouldn't put them in the serps. I wasn't worried about this and bought the .org domain of the exact same domain of one of my aff programs. (For example, since playboy.com was taken i bought playboy.org and redirected it >> this is just an example.) I wasn't trying to get into the serps at all so I didn't care what G did or didn't do.

    I didn't have any content on my site and still don't. All I have on the .org is an .htaccess file with redirect to my affilate link. Now, I find in the serps that they have my affilate programs (.com) domain is listed with MY AFFILIATE link as the url. My aff link is on the 1st page of the serps.

    WTF happened? I'm wondering how I could exploit this to increase my url under even more serps for this domain. Should I create some doorway pages and hope the googlebot comes back? Maybe I should go buy some more .org domains for more programs?
