    Hi,

    If I dropcatch a domain that is related to my website and has some links/pagerank/traffic what is is the best way to pass on that good stuff to my main website.

    Is it:

    a) Create a one page website saying - "this site has moved click here to view the new site" perhaps with a automatic redirect after a few seconds

    b) http redirect

    c) full page frame redirect

    Thanks for any advice, I'm new here by the way.

    You should be able to set up a redirect from your domain management cp. If not then a meta refresh would work fine.

    i understood it was just a domain without hosting

    if this is teh case forget the redirect in teh domain management ( frame redirects and all that junk )

    create a .htaccess and add teh following line ( / redirects everything after the domain name to wherever

    redirect / http://ww.mydomain.com

    Surely if the domain is without hosting there is no where to host an .htaccess... :rolleyes:

    My main concern is about transferring some of the pagerank from the dropcatched domain to the existing site domain, I figured the type of forwarding used would have some effect on this (I have both domains hosted).

    yep just a regular 301 redirect would be best.
    It would also pass on links and pr
