Hi,
I have 2 websites.Site A and site B.
I would like to divert traffic from page x on site A to page Y on site B.

I started by adding the following commands to the <head> section of page x:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh"
CONTENT="1; URL=http://www.site_b.com/page_y.htm">

and

<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOARCHIVE">

I want the content of page x to remain forever secret.

Is this a good method?

This would be considered a "sneaky redirect" and against the Google guidelines. Also, it's easy to disable meta refreshes in a browser, so anybody could see your HTML on "page X".

Thanks ,volatilegx(can't spell check that name can i?)

What if i did the redirect with a .htaccess file.Would that be o.k with Google?

I'm a little confused about the whole 301 redirect issue. Personally, I think 301's are great. The specification is useful and works fine. Search engines are having problems with it because of abuse.

You might have better luck with this question in another forum, such as Google News or Search Engine Promotion.
