    Ok I have a situation and now that I have thought about it, I am not sure how this works. If you have a site redirect to another site, which page does google look at for indexing and ranking in serps?

    Just for example sake...

    If you have a site about airplanes and it forwards to a site about cars, which sites content does google pick up? Does it spider the site and rank it based on it's content, or does it rank based on the car site?

    Hopefully that makes sense.

    with that being said, if anyone knows a way to make sure that google ranks a site based on its content and not the site it forwards too, sharing that information with me would be ever so helpful. Thanks in advance everyone!

    Whichever has the better backlinking i think?? If you SEO the redirected site, then that will find traffic naturally, but if you SEO the 'aeroplane' site, then the redirected site will get traffic via that!

    Focus your SEO on one or the other.

    But what if they have completely seperate set of keywords I am trying to rank for? Site A is trying to rank for airplane, site B is trying to rank for Cars. If I redirect site A to site B, does google pull its ranking info from site A or B?

    It picks up the domain info of whatever you're forwarding it to (it picks up site B info). It will also drop your SERP ranking-just a warning. :p

    If you setup a permanent 301 redirect on Site A to SiteB, then google will give all the credit to Site B. You can build links to Site A, and google will pass most of the link juice to Site B.

    If you use meta-refresh to redirect Site A to Site B, google may not pass the link juice to Site B.

    Ok, because I want google to index the site based on site A's serp position. I have a site that is ranked pretty nicely getting lots of traffic. But there is a certain offer I can't promote on that site, that I wont to promote on site B. So I want site a to continue ranking well while sending traffic to site b.
