<META name="robots" content="index, nofollow">
<META name="googlebot" content="noindex, nofollow">

<META http-equiv="refresh" content="180">
You can use this meta tag to reload and redirect Web pages. It's easy to use.

Redirecting/Reloading, to another page, with the refresh meta tag:
Here the page will have to redirect to google.com after 2 seconds. It is better to use a web hosting control panel system like cPanel to redirect to another page.
- If the redirection is fast. The user will feel confused because he can't hit the back button. I don't know about you but i hate that.
