- Have a copy of the main website's homepage as the homepage at the new domain. All links on that page would link back to the main company website - the visitor would not notice anything different.
- Use a 301 Redirect. This is new to me and something I noticed online.
Sorry but none of these ideas are going to be very good for the client.
a) The search engines don't like you redirecting people when used for trickery.
Little or no original content
b) A 301 redirect is not going to help you because there is nothing on the new domain to advertise/get ranked for.
301 Redirects: What You Need to Know
A 301 permanent redirect is an instruction at the web server level indicating that something has moved/changed location. The instruction indicates the old location, the new location and that this move or change is permanent. The change can be a change in domain name, web page name, path to a web page on the site or to another site.
You will have to come up with a better idea.
What about a blog which references the original site naturally within the content?
