Ok, I have a refferal program for my users.. urls go to http://www.mydomain.com?ref=username

When the hit my page I 301 them to the http://www.mydomain.com after marking them as reffered... All works swell except MSN is indexing a refferal as my homepage and it destroyed my rankings on MSN.. Any ideas on a reason? I did the .htaccess re-direct over a onth ago but MSN is still causing me issues.. site:www.allfreechips.com


any ideas are very welcome!

You say you did a 301 redirect via .htaccess right?

What is the line that you used to redirect them?

I know this for sure because my client is fantatical about the search engines and tests If this particular web page is the main index page for a site, by using a redirect on a home page may cause the site not to be listed by the Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer
