If you look at your log, you'll see that 80 to 90% of your visitors came to your site for search terms that are probably not what you optimize for anyhow.

Yes - it's really not his fault (automated script for linking, his entire website's based on it).

Also, this isn't a problem on Yahoo or MSN - for some reason it's only Google.

The 302 is not on my website, hence I have no control over it! That's why this is so frustrating. It's a 302 hijacking issue that's been boggling G since last year or so (and still not fixed).

I vote for 301 redirect (permanent redirect). It's easy to set up and supposedly, works well with G rather than 302 redirect which can lead to a mess.

Blargh - it's a mess. I'm pretty sure I've just discovered the problem: neatorama.com's a victim of 302 redirect.

Anyone have any thought on what to do?

It's possible that the domain name was banned already before I got it (again, wayback machine doesn't have the previous owner's website archived so I don't know what's up).

Thanks simon1321,

I didn't think lack of back links is what's causing the website not to be indexed, neither is the lack of meta tags. But it can't hurt, so I'll add it later today.

You'd have to weigh the potential of a penalty against the potential of increased traffic due to the links.

I agree. The crux of the matter is the second part of that statement. "Right time" can change at any time, so there's actually little stability to this type of arbitrage.

I've seen arrows in search results before, but I think it's not Google - rather, it's an ASCII character in the page that got displayed.

What does your log say? If you're like everyone else, you'll notice that 80% of your visitors actually visit an internal page, so the lack of an index page shouldn't really hurt.
