Does a redirect harm SEO?
Wondering what's the best way to do this...
I've joined an affiliate program that comes with it's own branded store, which is what I wanted but their site & domain isn't optimised for the keywords I want to target.
I want to register a new domain, build a new site based around my keyword, do a `my domain to their domain' redirect & was wondering what is the best SEO friendly way of doing this?
If I set up a site, say .. www.mykeyword.com
.. optimised that page for the keyword & built backlinks to it.
Then my domain & optimised description would show up in the search results but when clicked it took them straight to the affiliate branded store...is this possible & more importantly is this ok in Google's eyes?
I'm curious on how I can target a keyword with a site that no visitor will see & redirect the traffic straight to their store without harming my invisible site's keyword optimization?
How all that made sense!?!
Thanks for any help.
