To begin with, a 302 redirect does not do what you want on a functional level. A correct 302 redirect will actually redirect you from
www.example.com. That means the user will see
www.example.com in the address bar and Google will as well.
In order for you to have two URLs with the same content you would need to duplicate the content which is bad from an SEO standpoint for 2 reasons:
- Google will see it as duplicate content and possibly mark it as spam or just downgrade it for being duplicate
www.example.com will compete with each other for the same keywords and SERPs which means you essentially split the SEO value of your pages in half.
In general if you want someone to go to
www.example.com/landingpage and see the content on
www.example.com you would do a 301 redirect which is a permanent redirect.
The other solution is to use a canonical link tag like this,
<link rel='canonical' href='http://www.example.com/' /> on the page,
www.example.com/landingpage. This works because it tells Google that the content is duplicate or very similar and which page is the correct page to show when someone searches for terms found on both pages and at the same time lets you use
www.example.com/landingpage as a landing page for paid ads for example.
A 302 redirect is generally for temporary redirects or redirects for unspecified reasons. In general Google does not give you any benefit for 302 redirects.
