Back-Button Redirect script does, is that it rewrites the browsers “history” with an url you can specify. So when someone hits the “back” arrow, it will load the url you’ve specified, instead of actually returning to the previously visited url.

This will affect SEO value ?

If Someone come from google organic to landing page , Press browser back button, its redirected to user defined landing page.

Can any one Help in this.

This just got fixxed in a recent chrome update I believe.

A site in my niche who abused this to keep people from bouncing back to google recently got the #*$! demoted out of it.

Wouldn't try it :) / don't think it's of any use *anymore*

Do you believe that it might provide such a vast benefit to your SEO that it could override the guaranteed hatred the site will accrue from all human users?

You have to try to think how happy you would be if you wanted to leave and found yourself redirected. Most people would not only never come back, they would probably complain loudly to friends, family and strangers.

There's a reason why so many are taking up script killer extensions (add-ons) and ad blockers. Even so, some of these things are so egregious the only way out is to close a tab, or the browser!, and start over.

What a way to make potential friends into enemies!
