What to do with another domains i own?

Msg#: 4521159 posted 4:30 pm on Nov 21, 2012 (gmt 0)

I have my website www.example.com which is my main website.

I had 5 other pages which had only landing page with the same products i offer.

Example i offer head shampoo, dog shampoo and other
so on my main site i have landing page + product section where you can see all products.

So i had www.widget example.com which had the landing page with some seo keywords and picture of a product so on, and a link which when clicked transferred to my main product site.

Now Google tells me that i cant do its against their rules. ok but what i can do with those domains now?

Is it ok if i redirect like this?:
index.php on that www.widget example.com domain and the index like this:

header("Location: http://www.example.com/products/head-shampoo.php", TRUE, 301);die();

Coz i read around and it seams that not even this is good for Google.

can you help me out? thanks.

welcome to WebmasterWorld, GoingInsane!

please use example.com for your domain nme.
then the forum software won't link your URL.

as long as there aren't questionable inbound links the 301 is the best solution.

the Location: header should preferably link to the most specifically relevant page rather than the home page.

Thanks for the tip.

Anyway what you mean by questionable inbound links?
