Hey all,

I have a website that I'd like to rank for a certain keyword. I was doing some domain searching and found that the keyword I would like to rank for is available as a .org domain name. I would like to buy that .org domain, redirect it to my main website, and then somehow get the .org domain name ranked in the SERPs.

What's the best way to get a domain ranked which solely redirects to another website?

Thanks for your help!

    301 redirect is the most efficient and Search Engine Friendly method for webpage redirection. It's not that hard to implement and it should preserve your search engine rankings for that particular page. If you have to change file names or move pages around, it's the safest option. The code "301" is interpreted as "moved permanently".

        I am actually going to be redirecting a new, freshly-bought domain (which contains my keyword) to my old website which has all the content and a less-preferable domain name. Does 301 redirect still apply?

    You need to do it with frames so that you can include some content for the spiders. I use the Ninja Cloaker but is easy enough to just write it manually.

    I do it all the time, with no problems.

    Here is an example:

    <html>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=http://wackycentral.com/WetPaint/?e=bink">
    <title>Google Loves Wetpaint</title>
    <body>
    <script>
    document.location.href = "http://wackycentral.com/WetPaint/?e=bink";
    </script>
    <div align="center">
    <font color="#000000" size="2" face="tahoma">
    <b><font size="4">Loading Google Loves Wetpaint</b>
    <br><br><br>
    Please wait...</font>
    <br><br><br><br>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    I then slip some content in above the </div> for the spiders to crawl.
    Technically I have heard this isn't supposed to work anymore, but it does pretty regularly for me.

    For situations where I plan on being in that niche on a long term basis, I will set up a WP Blog as a supporting site.

      Build backlinks to it

      That's the only proven & legal way to do so.

      Thanks, RobinC. So you would recommend I buy up the new domain and start building backlinks to it, even though it only has a little bit of content in the div for the search engines?
