I have some tag pages on my website which contain specific keywords. They appear in the Google search results for those keywords.
Those pages bring in a fair amount of traffic but the bounce rate is very high because they contain a mixed of links to other pages on my site. This is confusing users and I don't have a way to fix the pages.
So lets say this is the page in Google result:
So what I am planing to do is to redirect in .htaccess all those
/tag/ pages from search results to the root domain, hoping that bounce rate is going to be much lower and I am going to get better user experience.
Btw. with those pages I got on the Google first pages for the keywords I would hardly rank for if I did it normal convenient way.
How would Google behave with this redirection? Is it good practice to
redirect a landing page in terms of ranking for specific keyword?
Would Google leave me on the first page for the specific keyword or even maybe rank me higher, or I would just lose my ranking positions?
