    Hey guys, so here is the deal. I searched for a keyword, and I noticed that a person that appears for it in first place is simply doing a 302 redirect directly to a clickbank hoplink. Is that going to last? I thought google would not index something like that, only a 301? Could someone please explain :confused:

    EDIT: also, in the 'cached version', it is the same page that I am being redirected to, so it is not cloaked. It is just an exact copy of the clickbank affiliate landing page.

    view the site as a googlebot

    it will probably send you to the correct page

    isn't the 'cached version' the version that google saw?

    302 is temporary

    301 is permanent

    so you can still rank for the page

    i overlooked your editreply but you're right
