Redirecting to my Homepage

Hello,

I’ve got a question about external Links, especially those from Search Engines: If a Visitor comes to my Site due to an external Link, I want him/her always beeing redirected to my Startpage. Any Ideas how to implement this with Textpattern/Html?

Re: Redirecting to my Homepage

kuechi,

you can probably accomplish this via the .htaccess file. I’m not sure how to do it off the top of my head, but I would research RewriteCond and RewriteRule

UPDATE
Found this sample code out there:
RewriteRule on

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^.*sitename\.com.* [NC]
RewriteRule /* http://www.sitename.com/ [R,L]

I highly suggest researching all aspects of RewriteCond and RewriteRule before implementing this sample code

There’s probably a PHP script out there, but I would strong advise against using it. Search engine visitors search to find a page, not to be redirected to the homepage and have to hunt for the page they needed.

Re: Redirecting to my Homepage

Found this sample code out there:
RewriteRule on

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^.sitename\.com. [NC]
RewriteRule /* http://www.sitename.com/ [R,L]

I tried this now:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.kuechelmann.net* [NC]
RewriteRule /* http://www.kuechelmann.net/index.php [R,L]

and theoretically your idea is an good try. But now i always get a “Infinite Redirection Error”. I’ve also tried HTTP_HOST with the same Result :( The Apache Server Doku is a little bit hard to understand, so if you have any further suggetions it would rahter help me.

Tnx to now—
