Hello all, I've hit a wall in googling for the answers I seek so here I am. I'm new to SEO and I'm doing some research on the subject for my employer in the hopes that this is something I can learn and hopefully handle for the company. I was also sent a few questions to look into during my research.
Basically on what redirections practised will get a site blacklisted and what won't.
1. will a site be blacklisted if a redirection is done without being revealed
2. subdomains that are 301 based will they have the same effect in ranking as the native url
3. If I have a sale.mysite.com set up, redirecting to www.mysite.com/toys/catalogue1011/clearance, will this
a. Cause my site to be blacklisted
b. Give me a boost in my keywords (now I’m registering both “sale” and “clearance”
Any help you could give would be great, like I said I'm run out of search queries on these questions. (if anyone knows of a resource that addresses these you can also through that my way, thanks)
