I'll shoot my PC, I was writing loooong explanation, and then it freezed, and I lost all my text

UH, here is again..

I have a site that finally started to payoff for my SEO work, and it receives some 2000 UV/day from Google.

I also have a search engine that has pretty nice amount of traffic, and I have an option to advertise my site on TOP of search results.
And I've done it, and get some traffic from it.

But I want more ...who doesnt?

I was thinking to setup a domain on other server ( empty one...without content ) and make a new page for each search I am interested in ( empty pages...without content ) and redirect all that ( whole domain ) to my main site.

Why I am doing this?
Cause I could make a titles and descriptions unique for each search, and make them more interesting for visitors to click on it.
I coul redirect it through CPanel redirect option and make it as permanent ( 301 ) redirect.

Now, my dileme is will Google find it as to big redirect, and penalize my main site because of it?
Are the empty pages something that could get me problems? Can Google crawl pages that are redirected?
And so on, and so on...

Can I have problems with this big use of redirection ( probably few hundred new made empty pages that will be redirected to my main site )

I could probably get more traffic with these actions than I get from Google now, but I wouldnt like to get a penalty for my main site, cause I think it has a perspective to become much better in Google in some longer period, and would not like to loose that possibility!

Whats your thinking about this?

PS. Sorry on my english, I know thousands of english words, but my grammar and spelling is disaster for most of time

This is not a good idea at all - almost definitely will cause you trouble.

Hm, I thought so.

Now, its big dileme - will I try it for day or two, to see if incoming traffic from my SE will be much better than this on Google.

Thanks anyway..

almir - As tedster suggests, this is almost certain to cause you trouble.

As you described what you're planning to do, it also doesn't quite make sense...

Why I am doing this?
Cause I could make a titles and descriptions unique for each search, and make them more interesting for visitors to click on it.
I coul redirect it through CPanel redirect option and make it as permanent ( 301 ) redirect.

When you 301 redirect a page, the source page ceases to exist, so no one, including the search engines, will see those titles and descriptions, and they won't help you.

It also may be that you're not really talking about 301 redirects... that you're talking about some other kind. These may well be worse in their effects. A bunch of redirects of any kind, though, funneling into your target pages, is going to be seen as an attempt at manipulation.

But I want more ...who doesnt?

As you've observed, search efforts take time to pay off. Patience is rewarded. Better leave things as they are, and continue working on your site.

Yes, I know.

I wasnt talking about search engines to see titles, but visitors of my search engine.

And yes, its certainly 301 permanent redirect, I made it as permanent, and I have an option in my SE that tells me that page is 301 redirected.

Anyway, I do believe this can be trouble.
Thanks, both of you
