301 or 302 redirect for Domain Store?

Hello,

 

What is best to use redirects 301 or 302 if:

 

I sell domains and want to redirect all domains that is for sale to the domain store.

 

For example:
I sell domains on DomainStore.com

I sell these domains:
Domain1.com
Domain2.com etc.

 

I need to redirect Domain1.com to subpage DomainStore.com/forsale/domain1.com
and Domain2.com to subpage DomainStore.com/forsale/domain2.com  etc....

 

While domain is for sale what is the best way to redirect, 301 or 302? (Domain few years can be forwarded)

 

Thx.

Thx

@a-z 301 is a permanent redirect and probably the best one for your purposes.

Thanks for your reply!

 

But as GoDaddy Help Сenter say's at: https://www.godaddy.com/help/what-are-301-and-302-redirect-pages-2376

"A 301 redirect can provide a long-term solution by pointing your domain names to business or affiliate sites.

A 302 redirect points your domain name to a temporary page while you build your permanent website."


I think as long as domain is for sale and waiting for a permanent website (new domain owner) it is better to use 302 temporary redirect. While the domain is for sale, I temporarily redirect it ! Already, the domain buyer uses the domain for its needs.

 

That's what MOZ write: https://moz.com/learn/seo/redirection
"301 is a permanent redirect which passes between 90-99% of link juice (ranking power) to the redirected page.
302 It passes 0% of link juice (ranking power)"

 

What do you think?

And how much time is meant for 302 temporary redirect? There are restrictions and guidelines for how long to use?
