Hi,

I have a client who has a backlink pointing to his home page. The backlink comes from a disgruntled employee, so we don’t want to start a digital war.

However, what we would like to do is whenever someone clicks from his website to my client's, we would redirect them to a different landing page on our site. Something funny like a gif of a singing bird. Obviously, that page with the singing bird would be noindex, nofollow and not connected anywhere on the site.

Please keep in mind that the link from the disgruntled employee goes to the home page. We use Wordpress, if that helps.

Thanks,
Chris

Thank you, Yan.

I will pass this information to our developer. Our developer should be able to convert the code to Nginx. However, would you happen to have the same code but for Nginx servers as this is what we use?
