Currently I have a website with a list of audio products (essentially a search engine for audio deals). http://www.soundplaza.co.uk
Once you go to the details page, you can then press the 'view deal' button to go to providers site e.g. = http://www.soundplaza.co.uk/all-deals/113/bookshelf-speakers/acoustic-energy-1
This jump between two sites is a bit harsh and I would like to show a transition page, to simply ease them into another site and not scare them off.
Within this tradition page I will have a simple loading gif and some graphics showing that your transferring.
What is the best way to send the details (link, product name etc) to this transfer page, to then wait 5 seconds, to then move on to the desired link... this can in NO WAY damage my SEO, if anything
rel="nofollow" would be great if possible.
I have seen that you can submit form to the transition page, then you can use php sleep and then php header to transfer... however I am not sure if php header will transfer SEO value to the provider?
