Will a blank forwarding page harm my site's ranking?
In order to promote a Clickbank product, I'm sending traffic to a single page within my website. This page is blank (apart from the words "one moment please") and simply forwards the traffic to my Clickbank affiliate link.
I'm concerned that Google will penalise my website because of:
(a) the blank page.
(b) the bounce rate - visitors will only spend a couple of seconds on the site before being forwarded.
Are my concerns unfounded? Should I scrap the idea and buy a new domain just for such a purpose?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
