How can i direct url to another url but not losing the title,description in google? pelazgos99999 2/24/12 12:11 PM
I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: YES
My site's URL (web address) is: www.supermpala.com
Description (including timeline of any changes made): I want to redirect www.supermpala.com to another site e.g www.website.com/supermpala but i want users searching in google for supermpala.com to be able to see www.supermpala.com in the search results.... I dont want Google to be crawling both websites, i only want the first website to continue appearing in the search results.... thanks

You want to redirect without the user noticing it and without Google showing the new URL?
Doesn't sound like a good idea. Can you explain that?

I want to redirect users to www.website.com/supermpala ..... i dont want to delete www.supermpala.com, i want google to keep its url and title in the search results.... however, the users will be redirected to the new website.... the new website already exists) but i want to enrich it and double the users...

For instance supermpala.com has 15.000 visitors per day and www.website.com has other 15.000 visitors, but the company is one... so we want to merge the visitors and the content of the websites, but we dont want to lose the url of supermpala.com in google search results...

1. If you properly redirect users and search engine crawlers to the new URL, you will only see that new URL in the search results. And I don't know why you wouldn't want that.

2. If you have the same content on both URLs, you'll simply have a duplicate content issue. Something most knowledgeable SEOs try to avoid.

3. If you try to circumvent that somehow by showing Googlebot other results than users, you're practicing cloaking. That is something you most definitively do not want.

I'd go for option 1.

A 302 redirect will send traffic from one site to the other and keep them both indexed.  Now that I've said that, I don't recommend it as a viable solution. 

Having two sites with the same or very similar content is problematic
The 302 redirect will strip away all traffic from that domain which would conceivably hurt it long term
This is not what a 302 is intended for so having never tried this I don't have first hand knowledge of the impact

I don't how you can accomplish your goals without running a muck with the algo

If your going to only have one website with content then the best move will be to permanently redirect (301) the alternate website to the main website.

This redirect will send all the users over as well as tell the search engines to update their data to the new website.

To make sure things run smoothly you want to make sure every URL in the old website goes to where the content has moved to on the new website (the supermpala sub folder), using a 301 Redirect.

In the end, the supermpala domain will be milked of all it's traffic and ranking. It will eventually just be there to redirect people who visit via outdated links (referrals). Google will stop sending people to that domain and instead directly to where the pages have moved to in the subfolder.

Let me address that the websites after the redirect will not show identical content. All the new articles will be placed under www.website.com/supermpala.

I just want to keep the name of supermpala.com indexed in google!!! So, if a user searches for supermpala, i want my website to be shown first result, as it is shown now.......

Then keep the content on THAT domain and do not duplicate it on another site and do not redirect anybody.

guys, i want to follow the following example....
www.simerini.com.cy.... This website is indexed in google, it is shown first result but if you enter the website it takes you to www.sigmalive.com/simerini....

Only the meta of simerini.com.cy (not the content) is shown in google results... This is what i want exactly....

That is a 302 redirection and it's a very bad idea.
 
If you explain WHY you want this we may be able to help you better.

As i said before, i want to merge the users of both websites under one website and make it stronger!!!
In addition, I dont want to lose users that will type supermpala in Google and get nothing in results!!! This is the reason!!!

Then you need to 301 redirect from the domain to the subdirectory on the other site and no two ways about it. Then logically the domain will stop being indexed in favor of the subdirectory.
 
That is what's meant by consolidation.

The content is what ranks. If your subdirectory has all the same content as the domain had there's no difference.
 
You cannot rank for content you don't have.

The 301 will not mean they get nothing, they go to the subdirectory like the simerini example.

What simerini are doing is splitting their index and their ranking. There is no point in doing that and having two domains perform worse than on consolidated domain.

Over time simerini cy will still lose ranking as people cannot link to it any more. It will slowly drop out of the search results and take it's ranking with it.

With the 301 redirect all will look the same, but you will be moving all your ranking over so you don't lose it when your original domain starts to fail.
