I need your valuable remarks over query, which puzzles me a bit. My question is:
I have two sites. Say, site A & site B. Site A is old one & site B is new one. The theme of both the sites are same. The rankings of both sites are good in major search engine like Google. I re-directed few pages of site B including home page to site A through server IIS redirect.
Pages which I redirect are on same theme and same name like www.B.com/bb.html redirect into www.A.com/bb.html.
Now I have few question regarding redirect:
1. Would my site B rankings lost OR not? 2. Site A Ranking will effect? 3. The SE crawler also redirect into A when it crawls site B? 4. When Search engine cache site B page which we redirect into Site A page then what will be the snapshot while we check site B latest cache record after redirect?

As you know redirection is used for redirect user or crawler from one page to other, it means page for which we put redirection is no more. Now it's very clear, if you redirect site B page to site A page you will definitely loss ranking of site B page. And when crawler comes on site B page and found redirection to site B page it crawled site a page.
You know it's unethical way to redirecting traffic from one site to another and Goole may punished you for that, means you lost the ranking of both sites.
