Hello, I want to have one page optimized for search engines, onces the user click the link in the search engine he will be redirected to another site (more graphic, etc...)
I know I can do that with http refresh but my concern is: wich of the 2 pages will be indexed in the search engines? The one who is optimized for search engines? or the one for the the users(more graphics).
In other words, will the search engine robot actualy see the graphic page or just think the optimized is the only page without see the http refresh. I'm new in that and will appreciate any help. Thank's

The search engines will see the http refresh unless you do some server side scripting to not server the refresh code to the search engine bots.

Good cloaking software doesn't use refreshes, anyway. Instead think about using LWP or curl to grab the destination page and serve it up under the original URL.
