    Hey blackhatters, quick question and hope I can get an answer to it soon.

    So I know about Page Rank, SERPS, backlinks, and all that other stuff to get to #1 in G, but I was wondering what would happen if once you got your site to #1 and you then redirected it straight to a cpa offer. Would you drop rank?

    Ex.
    You are #1 for keyword "free itunes card" in Google.
    You had a review site or whatever with keywords, articles, meta tags, the whole nine yards.
    You then put a redirect from your homepage straight to the cpa offer.
    Would it drop in rank? Is this frowned upon? Wouldn't it really help with CTR if you don't give them a banner or link to click and just send them straight to the offer now that you are #1?
    Or is it even possible to be #1 if you redirected from the very beginning when you registered the domain?

    Any help would be great! Thanks BHW. :D

    Yeah you will 1000% lose your rank , but the question how fast would be this drop ? All that "on page" seo will be bypassed when u redirect your domain to cpa ..

    there are ways of not losing your rank, just check if the user is from SE, if yes, then redirect, if its a type in visitor then let him view ur website...

    means if someone remembers your site url and types in and reaches ur website instead of reaching it through a search engine...

    ok.. thanks. I was thinking that term is "direct visitors" :) Ok anyway..

    But NEO you are saying direct visitors should see the original site , and SE visitors should redirect. And I am thinking SE visitors should see the your site and direct visitors can be redirected to CPA ..

    Is this not more reasonable in SERP manner ? Can you explain little more ?
    Thanks..

    you are aiming for Rank 1 on google, then why would you redirect the type-in traffic?? and if you make your site visible to only SE visitors, you'll have to place in more checks, that would also mean that you will serve a different page to the bots, which is highly frowned upon, where as in the other case you just have to check the referrer and if its a SE then redirect.. make your choice, if i were you, i would have redirected the SE traffic as thats where we will get the most visitors from...

    if you are getting traffic from FB ads then you can place a referrer check and redirect those too... there are many things that you can do so just think about what you really want

    No no , i didnt mean this. Here is key point only .. I meant just if necessarily some traffic is redirected it should be only Direct traffic , all remaining other traffic including bots should remain visible ofcourse..

    I was actually completely against redirecting , you put me in a corner man :). But I agree with you , I see what you mean Fb traffic is also okay to redirect . But still SE traffic I am thinking google has some kind of ping back mechanism that they can sense your redirect and drop your rank..

    Ok..thanks. I am gone now :)..
