trying to find the best way of auto refreshing a page to another page without being penalised by the engines...
settled on a bit of PHP:
header ("Location: $URL");
however - this has to be on the page as opposed to external java script
anyone know if using this bit of code will trigger spam filters etc?
or alternatively know of a better way of doing it all together?
cheers in advance for your help
mucho appreciated :-)
I have never used the PHP redirect example you have listed so I don't have any past experience to offer. However, I have used other redirect types for totally legit purposes and Google never disposed of them.
I think it all depends on how they see what you are doing it for. If it gets flagged or reported and some intern checks it out only to find mischievous intentions then who knows.
They have the chance to test filters out anytime they like, so if they aren't detected now, who knows what happens next month, you know?
