    Hi

    I have put up a blog with some unique content for ranking and then ive scaped and posted sh*tload off content and im recieving 500 uv a day and i was wondering is there a way i can redirect all incoming traffic to my homepage which contains an affilliate presell, but then after that they can browse the website without getting redirected.

    I have tried the 301 redirect but my server says im redircting in a way that will never complete.

    also im ranking on page one for my keyword so i dont want to lose my ranking and i still want my new post to be indexed. If this is a bad idea then please just advice me of that.

    Thanks for any help

    Can no one help me then?

    Ive searched around and cant find anything that does this so i might have a script coded for it.

    Does anyone know how i could avoid search engine penanlties with this script before i hire a coder?

    I don't understand why a simple 301 didn't work?
    Can you post the contents of your htaccess file over here or the method of redirection that you've used?

    Something like this didn't work?

    Code:
    redirect 301 /index.html http://www.domain.com/index.html 
    redirect permanent /index.html http://www.domain.com/index.html 
    redirectpermanent /index.html http://www.domain.com/index.html 
    What kinda server are you running?

    Why delete jungle when im just asking a question? Ok im new but im not asking to be spoonfed or for someone to please tell me how to make money where i dont have to do any work.

    scriptomania im using a wordpress site on a bluehost server. but the 301 redirect would just continually try to redirect the page ive just rediected to.

    Hard to explain but what i actually want is to redirect everypage except the homepage because thats what i want to redirect to. but i only want it to redirect once for an incoming visitor and then they would be free to browse the website without the pages continuing to redirect them. Is there a way i can tell the htaccess to do that?

    But then ive realised i might have problems with search engines not indexing my new post or them getting the 301 site moved message and deindexing/deranking my website. Thats why i was thinking i might need to have a little script coded for it.

    what about instead of a 301 redirect you try a meta refresh?

    Not sure i need to do some research on a meta refresh.(i have no coding experience by the way) but how would i be able to get this to be applied site wide for incoming traffic? With my htacces?

    Am i right in thinking that all my pages would refresh themselves to my homepage.

    Hey littleg2008

    Im half way there so ive do some metarefresh research and basically by using an ads widget that inserts this code into every post.

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    <html><head>
    <title>Title of Page</title>
    <meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;
    url=homepage url i want to redirect to">
    </HEAD><BODY></BODY></HTML>
    its a very simple attempt at what i want to do.

    But really i would like my visitor to be able to browse my website after they have seen my homepage presell. So its sort of only semi-blackhat and semi-spami. But obviously this way no matter wether the vistor has already been redirected to the homepage they will always be redirected back when they try and browse.

    is there anything you could suggest please?
    And with the meta refresh do you think i could avoid search engine penalties, meaning they will still index new posts of my site before they are redirected? Thinking about it i need a code similar to page cloaking or whatever its called were you used to redirect the search bot to a keyword stuffed page and the visitor to another, only the other way round where the visitor is redirected to my presell but the search bots are left alone to spider and index the webite. an anyone direct me to a code that does this? I will continue my search for this code anyway.


    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Hi again mate,

    honestly, i wouldnt worry about penalties by using a meta refresh. Your basially keeping all traffic within your domain so it shouldnt throw up any red flags.

    One thing you could do however if you want them to view your rest of the site after is removing the meta refresh and just creating one big pop up that replicates the homepage, and with that you can set that it only appears however many times frequency you wish
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Ok Mate

    thanks for the help with the meta refresh and the pop up suggestion. Im going to play about now. like i said before im not looking to be told how to make money, but i appeciate help like this with things along the way.

    I think if i want to get anymore specific then i will need an actual script made for my needs that records incoming ips and after the redirect gives them access to the full site. or a cookie is given to vistors after there first redirect granting full access.

    But thats a story for another day, and im not sure if its worth me getting that complex just for what im trying to do yet.

    Anyway thanks again

    hey littleg2008

    one more thing im not sure if it works this way but this is the redirect im using

    Code:
    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=page address to redirect">
    Is there a no-follow tag i can add to this so that google doesnt follow the redirect?

    If so im thinking that will mean that google will carry on indexing whatever page it is on without following the meta refresh redirect(essentially ignoring it because of the no-follow tag)

    Is this correct? and if so where would i add the tag please.
