Newbie :( Redirection and 3rd level domains.

Lot of detailed discussion in various parts - a bit confusing.

I have a site that accepts muliple domain pointers.

I want to have six sites. Different domain names on four, other just *.com and *.eu difference. Diffent content.

Firstly, redirection: I know I can write scrip that will send the user from the root to the appropriate directory of the othersites.

Will this be penalised by the SE? Is server-side better than client-side? I presume I can mask the address with frames.

Secondly, if that were not an option could I do this with 3rd level domains AND not effect SEs?

Or put another way, which is best?

TIA

>Will this be penalised by the SE?

It can. Hard to say in absolutes. You want to stay away from feeding spiders redirects. They will attempt to index the destination page at it's real url. If that url is fluid, some se's will have a problem with it.

From my experience, redirection based on keywords is considered spam nearly 100% of the time.

>Is server-side better than client-side?

Yes always. Not only for se purposes, but usability as well.

>3rd level domains AND not effect SEs?

There has been some growing concern that se's and 3rd level domains are not on friendly basis at the current time.

>which is best

Static pages, no redirects, and no 3rd level domains other than good old www.

Brett, thanks for taking the time.

My objective was to simply save some money on hostng fees (I'm gonna use ColdFusion)and most sites come in big chunks.

I would only do that if it was fairly safe to do. So I'm stuffed then :-)
