Are pages that redirect allowed now?

Msg#: 4419846 posted 3:54 am on Feb 21, 2012 (gmt 0)

When I do a search for "swtor leveling guide" I'm noticing a couple of adwords ads that have websites w/ foreign extensions. One has .TK and the other a .eu.cr - and both of them redirect to the same landing page.

Is that even allowed? And if not, how is the quality score not catching that?

Well, if the ad shows a .tk, that's the domain the click should land on because that's the rule. The system usually catches on to this but not sure if it's immediate.

Actually there are several of them there now including a .info - and they all redirect to the same .com page. Been like that for several days now. I'm surprised it wasn't picked up immediately. They must have some funky script hiding it from google.

I don't report these things to google myself anymore, because it seems like every time I do, they look and find something wrong with my account, and leave the offending account alone.

I don't think googlebot is likely to rank pages that return a 302. I also doubt it can update content on pages that return a 302.

Not to be mean, but this sounds incredible convoluted for an honest design/concept. Why would every page need the entire site content?
