I am signing up for an affiliate scheme which will have a cumbersome address hardly conducive to being marketed.
I'm thinking of buying a domain to which I can forward this affiliate. I understand that to get any sort of ranking I need a 301 forwarding is this true and if I merely use the domain sellers forwarding to my new domain will this be 301?
Thanks Kemistri, a quick browse of the article suggests it is possibly beyound my technical nous. My domain seller Heart internet do automatic and framed redirect, Looking at it, I think I need a framed redirect as this will display my new domain name and not the long winded affiliate address.
Do you know if a framed redirect is inherently 301? cheers
I'm confused, according to Heart internet, my supplier, if I use a framed redirect I can set the title that is shown in the web browser and the meta keywords and a description of my website that search engines use to index the site.
This seems better than the only other option which is automatic and which doesn't let me add keywords etc and leaves the cumbersome address in the address bar.
There is really nothing to be confused about. 301 methods (click here) are best practice. Frames are not, and that includes redirects within frames. Don't just take what is offered, assuming that it is the best solution for you. I recommend that you do some more research before proceeding.
