    I have a client whose e-commerce site has a redirect for the home page. The store starts in the catalog folder (www.website.com/catalog) so we have the index.html with a redirect script

    Code:
    <SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    window.location="http://www.website.com/catalog";
    //-->
    </SCRIPT>
    So does a home page redirect effect the search engine indexing or will it not have any effect?
