Just To Be Clear

I just want to be clear about some things so I don't get banned from google and so I can stay on the "white" side of things.

If I where to create a subdomain lets say:

product.domain.com for an Ecommerce site and on this product.domain.com I where to basically recreate the content on lets say domain.com/product but I sent non SE bots (i.e real users) to domain.com/products using a php 301 redirect script and let the SE bots indiex the product.domain.com site with better text links and such would that be black or white?

And if I where to link to this site from blogs I own and other such content sites would this be ok?

Or is this black?

Currently my commercial site ranks 3,4,4 on google, yahoo and MSN for a specific key word, however I would like to add better exposure for other key words.. I have NOT employed any cloaking techniques just a few blogs which link to said key word... blogs which contain useful info and are updated daily on other products in this industry.

However like I said I want the word “product” to be ranked higher on the SEs as well.. I know that subdomains can be useful.

I believe that redirecting spiders only to optimized content would be considered "black hat". Maybe it doesn't meet the strict definition of cloaking, but it's darn close.

And if I where to link to this site from blogs I own and other such content sites would this be ok?

That's a gray area (gray hat?). I'd go for it.
