    Hi All!
    I have a question about SEO and URL directs which I haven'tBeen able to find an answer to online.
    Take this scenario; using SEO techniques and tools on a pagewith content, but using URL redirect code in the header to automatically bringthe user to (maybe) an affiliate page. What's the result of this scenario goingto be? Would trying to create backlinks for the content page end up with thebacklinks pointing to the affiliate page (Which I don't want)?

    My question, again, is that if I use something like a Meta Refresh Tag to bring a user automatically from page A to page B how will it effect the SEO that is already in place on page A? Will it affect page A's search engine ranking? If so, how?
    I need page A to keep its search engine ranking's, SEO and such
    Is there any source of information you could send me to on this?

    I believe a 0sec delayed meta refresh is treatened as a 301 redirect which passes much of the ranking power of page A to page B.
    But if you want to redirect immediately I would simply use a htaccess redirect instead of meta refresh.

    I would suggest using a htaccess redirect as well. More efficient.

    If you've a knowledge about .htaccess redirection rules then I'd tell to give a GO.
    There are few guides on Google (Just search term as "how to redirect a site using .htaccess" or ".htaccess site redirection rule")
    You'll figure out the answers for the same.

    Learn how to cloak, this is what you need to accomplish your goal.
    In case you don't know what cloaking is: showing one page to search engines and different to visitors.
