Redirects - Bridges - Linking
From JK Bowman at Glass Bottom on 14 Dec '99
I have 2 questions. I apolgize for the length of this post but the questions are related.

I frequently set up entry pages to the sites I create with redirect scripts wherein I sniff for browser version, plug-in presence, resolution, etc.. The effect allows me to deliver a site custom designed for the viewer's configuration.

I have recently been hearing that "redirects" are being frowned upon by some of the search engines.

Does anyone have any tips, experience, or suggestions for redirects? Aside from offering a "Click Here Button" if you are 800x600 ect.. I don't know a work around.

I am a member of a online web development community. I know search engines look to see if you are linking to outside resources.

If I gathered the other members of this community all of whom have the same content on their site) and we linked to each other - could we form a spider "loop" and thereby increase ranking?

Thanks a million. And nice site, BTW....
