Question:

I have heard about 302 Hijacking that possibly removes my site from google's index. How does a 302 redirect affect me?

Answer:

Let's say a hostile site www.hostile.com sets up a 302 redirect to your site www.mysite.com, then googlebot (the spider) see the temporary redirect from hostile.com to mysite.com

Note:
Such a temporary redirect can be set up as a header redirect (clean solution with a 302 status) or supposedly also using meta tags.

When the spider sees the redirect, it concludes that www.hostile.com is a new version of your www.mysite.com - because the temporary redirect tells google that www.mysite.com is there only temporarily.
Logically Google will then remove www.mysite.com from its index. So now when someone uses a search term that would have normally brought up your site www.mysite.com will now bring up their www.hostile.com

Google knows of the problem but as of today (5/8/2005) the problem is not fixed. Google hides the wrong URLs artificially when you search using this special syntax ('site:www.mysite.com'). The hostile URLs are still in the database and will still come up on normal searches.

I feel that that the solution to this issue would be to complaint about the fake website in Google Help Center and lets see their outcome.

What do you feel?

Only after reading this aoneuncnment, I thought exactly the same thing I always ask to explore new blogs and forums. All I think about it? Precisely how does it feel? This and other posts on his blog here no doubt give some tips to think. Finally ended up here through Yahoo when the first scene some research online for some courses that I am. In general, the time browsing through large and I hope to continue to write new messages. Cheers Very helpful article. I just found your site and the need to say that I particularly liked the study of their messages. Any way I'll be subscribing to your feed, and I hope to publish more soon after. http://liournm.com [url= http://fafaef.com]f..faef[/url] [link= http://nfsoyjwa.com..jwa[/link]
