    Today i need your comments and suggestions about the following:

    I manage a forum with the main url of The number one market place for webmasters - SEO Talk, Domains and more - Powered by vBulletin, into this forum i have a category called "Language Forums" where is possible to post, discuss on Spanish or Italian (pls keep in mind the main language of the forum is english). Well now i'm using the domain name onlinewebmarket.eu to drive traffic directly to this category, how?, i'm using a service called "Domain Forwarding" so this domain (the .eu) acts as a stand alone web and masks the redirects to the .net one. I'm using into the mask the META Tags and Descriptions as usually into "Head" so i avoid the 301 redirect status... But for SEO... is that good?, it could penalize the main .net PR rank?, what about the .eu domain?...

    Pls gimmi some suggestions...

    I already asked this question before in other forums, and was told that the website will be banned, and some people told me that Google allows 301 redirection of your page as long as not Cloak...
    I'm confused though!
    I was googling aswell and found that Google specifically forbids "sneaky redirects" and yet encourages the use of 301 redirection for dealing with multiple domain names, for example.

    From a SEO expert I foun d that 'Google specifically forbids "sneaky redirects" and yet encourages the use of 301 redirection for dealing with multiple domain names, for example.' So I think it's ok!

    That is correct 301 redirects are totally legal, what they mean by sneaky redirects is a redirect that cloaks a site pretending to be another site and taking you visitors to some thing they dont want to see, 301 is just telling google that you want your visitors to that page.

    It means i should establish a hosting account for this .eu domain and then into Cpanel redirects (301) this domain name to the .net as target?. I'm asking this due into the domain name Admin's panel i can't redirect it, so i only know another way to establish a redirect: into Cpanel...

    Am i correct?

    No you should be able to forward the domain to any URL you wish, which will act as a 301 redirect through your registrar. No need to have a hosting account at all, it wont say redirect in you domain cpannel it will say "forwarding" or something like that

    Thanks for all your suggestions but i think i arrived to a solution:

    Right now i created a hosting for this .eu domain. I'll upload Joomla (in spanish) and as a module of Joomla i'll ask members and visitors to follow the spanish section of the .net forum by clicking on the respective link.

    I think is a good solution or not?

    yeah that would work too, plus it if you filled the joomla site with good content it would actually enhance the seo value of your forum ( if done correctly )

    I think that means that masterweb's domain is in a high risk

    I mean if he doesn't use the 301 redirect, they would ban his domain, true ?

    No exactly but there is a risk , a 301 redirect is only something telling google its a perminent placement, 302 redirect is a temporary redirect

    I think he means your site is PR3 mate

    So to be sure i'll avoid any kind of redirects (301 or masking one), and as i told before i'll create an independent site running the .eu domain with normal links pointing to the .net forum and users, visitors should click those links in order to reach the "language section" located at the .net domain (so i think is a safe idea).

    I just typed T instead of W ..

    So, the correct sentence is
    Why would I Congratulate you if your site wasn't PR3... hehe.

    Sorry again.. That was a silly Typo by this funny stupid! :)
