I am trying to submit my first site to the search engines: It uses two redirection pages for checking peoples browser and screen resolution. How do I submit this to the search engines?

I am mostly interested in Google and Yahoo, and my question is if I should only
submit the 1st page which is a redirection page or how do I handle this?

Welcome to WmW Jacknoir!

I know that you may be better off if you get rid of the redirection, as some search engines do not like it. Especially since Yahoo is human-review.

Does anyone know of a trick or way around this?

Try using javascript redirect insted of html redirect. Otherwise Cloacking is the only way to go, and that is not easy. I wouldn't even try

Just notice something on wisenut.com. An affiliate program for one site redirects through a different domain. The destination page is the one indexed at wisenut, but the url show is the link to the redirect script. Looks like the spider follows server side redirects...
