301 Redirect , black hat or ?
« on: 07-12-2012, 08:57:16 »
Hi, I'm a newbie to this. My website - www.thailandhilltribeholidays.com has been active for 6rys now.

I know realise that I should really have chosen the domain name - www.thailandhilltribetours.com

This is because it's important for our line of business to rank highly for the words 'Thailand tours' and not 'Thailand holidays'.

So, my question is, if I purchase the domain name www.thailandhilltribetours.com , then put a 301 redirect from here to my existing site www.thailandhilltribeholidays.com,

is that considered black hat practice ? or ????

Any advice much appreciated, thanks

When a search engine sees a 301 redirection, it assumes that all credits for links to the redirecting URL actually belong to the new URL. This helps search engines index the new URLs very quickly. Meanwhile, 301 redirection brings good experience to end-users, rather than showing a 404 error page to users. Thus, 301 redirection contributes a lot to both search engine optimization and user experience of a website.
