If I was to redirect a landing page to a sales page, would the spiders pick up the content on the landing page or would they only look at the final sales page? (or worse, neither and leave my page in SEO purgatory?)
How does this affect the use of things like banner ads, content driven networks, article linking, social bookmarking, etc...? I understand the benefits of trying to set up a squeeze page to capture the email of the visitor. But, I'm wondering if this is feasible in a case where that does not matter and I'm only trying to drive traffic to the sales page through various channels (like affiliate links or from multiple landing pages to a main sales page, for example).
For clarity using a hypothetical example... Site A is a sales page, Sites B,C & D are all landing pages. If I redirect B,C & D to A, will I get any SEO 'credit' for the content of B, C & D or am I stuck with direct linking and pay-per traffic to make them perform?
In short, I know I can buy PPC on pretty much anything in certain networks and that I can do the social bookmark and article marketing thing but... am I going to score any 'organic' points through SEO efforts on the redirected landing page and cast a wider net for where it can be marketed?
Any tricks of the trade or other scenarios / ideas are certainly welcome.
Thanks in advance for your help!!
