    hey guys,

    So quick question...

    I have a site that makes about $100 bucks a day, I get 500 uniques a day.

    The site sells one product...

    I want to do a 301 redirect straight to my advertiser to see if i can increase earnings. Need some money.

    If I threw it on there for 24 hours, do you think it will greatly effect my SERP.

    I'm #1 for 5 keywords

    Right now I get about 50 people to my advertiser, I figure if I can send 500, maybe I can do a $1,000 day

    1) If you get spidered in that time, it will definitely have a negative effect on your serps in the long term.

    2) You won't make 10 times the money. The traffic that is clicking is more targeted and self selecting - they are volunteering to visit the offer. If you do a straight redirect, some of the additional people you redirect won't be interested in your offer at all. You will make more money, but it won't be 10x as much.

    3) You're better off popping your offer in an iframe in a div using jquery (look at lightbox, fancybox etc) rather than doing a straight redirect that is more easy for a bot to detect. Your other option is cloaking. Both options carry their own risk.

    It will definitely affect your ranking, you dont want to redirect your Money Making Site. Once the spider sees this, it will surely re-index you. Wish you the best of luck :)

    You need targetted traffic, and people that want to product will click on it, the others aren't interested. And beware that this can have a big impact on your SERP.

    DON'T redirect. Your site WILL drop in the SERPS. You are correct in thinking that if you send them to the advertiser automatically you will get more conversions. 10 times as much, probably not. Maybe a couple of more sales a day, but that's about it. The best way to go about doing this is to use an iframe or a content locker script that redirects to the offer page. There are other ways to do it, however you're more likely to effect your rankings that way.

    I would not risk it. I'd work on optimizing rather than pulling something that could ruin the revenue stream entirely. If you think about the flow of potential leads, it makes more sense to optimize anyway. Most of the people who are redirected involuntarily will simply leave.

    Huge risk:small reward=bad idea.
