    Hello,

    I have a discussion with a potential buyer who claims that redirect a domain to his site badly affected to search engine rankings.

    He wants me to send him examples of domains that have been sold for large sums and then redirected.

    Can anyone give me examples of such domains?

    Thanks in advance

    It turns out that just today Brooke Hernandez published a set of examples of direct match names used by major companies as redirects.

    If a site crashes php changes etc i will divert it for traffic reasons which is why you are asked. http://www.marketingwebmasters.com is diverting to http://www.premiumnamedomain.com at present. I also have some names cloaked. Not examples of sold domains but some will use generic to promote a brand most will make landers but at times diverted usually at purchase.

    he is not totally wrong. There are more instances of a redirect hurting a traffic than otherwise.
    You would need to know what you are doing if you want to use redirect for SEO purpose specially of the old site has a lot of inbound links.

    So, showing example will not work. In fact it is risky if the redirect ends up harming his site.
