    I own the top two spots in the serps for a keyword, and I want to re-direct my second site to the first spot site. (there's two different sites)

    But I don't want to 301, because it ends up dropping out of the ranks and only showing my site in first place.
    I don't need the link juice, but I want to auto re-direct all the traffic from second place, without placing some stupid link on my page saying, click here to visit this site. How would I do this?

    You can use javascript to execute this. Here is a code which you can use (be sure to place it in on the first line in your head of your current home page) Replace www.yournewpage.com with the website you want them to land on.


    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript"> <!-- window.location = "http://www.yournewpage.com/" //--> </script>

    or meta-refresh tag with timeout set to 0. js would be faster, put it as the first line in <head>
    you could also just do a 302...but I'm not sure the seo impact on that.

    Thanks, so I'll be able to keep my second spot, and have the page automatically re-direct from the link on google?

    Can the googlebot detect these methods? Are they safe?

    Other things to consider would be any duplication between the sites.... If google finds any it could devalue both..

    i bet if you use js/swf obfuscation you can run away from detection

    Another thought? Will the google spider follow the redirect? If it does even without detecting it how can it index new content/changes to the site? If after a while it thinks it's not there it will drop it anyway

    you own the top 2 spots (I assume for a worthwhile keyword) - why would you risk that?
    Just monetize the second site.

    Almost anything you do to redirect the traffic will be visible to google (and they will drop the second site). You can use a filter to only redirect non-bot traffic but it is easy enough to detect and will also get you 'demoted' because it's against tos to display different content to bots than humans.

    The best way to do this, imo, is to check the referrer if it's coming from search, and the user agent to see if it's not a bot, and then serve them a javascript redirect.

    Honestly, if you're making money, I probably would update the second page and not risk the change.
