    If I purchase a domain, and 302 it to my own subpage..


    ..will Google transfer its SERP to my page? I'm thinking about purchasing a site that is high up in SERPS just due to age, but I want it to go to my own page (due to advertising deals that only go to my own domain)

    Is this possible?

    First, use a 301 rediretc, not a 302. But yes, you can transfer much of what is driving that page's SERPs. to your site. But I would also look at the on page elements of your home page vs. that page. The age and backlinks play a big role, but they are not alone.

    301 redirect transfers a lot of goods to your new page. However, there could be a problem with backlinks which you don't have any control of. They still will be pointing to your old page/website. You may deal with this problem as long as you have redirect.
