    Hey Guys,

    is this bad practice in SEO using <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="30">. If it is bad then what is the other method to automatically refresh the page.

    Depends what the sites being used for?.

    If the page MUST refresh every 30 seconds, then fine..


    You could use javascript to refresh the page

    Why would you like to refresh every 30 secs.
    Is page content getting updated so fast?

    If you are using adsense google might loot at it differently. just a guess.

    I would strongly recommend not using meta refresh-type or JavaScript redirects like that if you have changed your URLs.

    Guys i thinks the meta refresh tag is a Tag used to redirect a user to a different web page. There are practical applications for using a meta refresh tag, but using them is a notorious spam technique.

    Why do you want to refresh your page at every 30 seconds this is not a good technique to provide your user to best content and it is count as spamming and search engine like Google never allow to spammy website to rank in their result. Java script is alternative method for refreshing page but this is also not a good for both user and search engine.

    It is useless for SEO, I'd suggest to stay away from using this

    Don't use refresh technique, as it is bad and spam according to Google.

    There is no such use of refreshing in every 30 sec. You must go with auto.
