| I know that some search engines won't index pages that have a short
| meta-refresh - apparently this is often used by porn sites - they have lots
| of domain names - each site contains bogus page with lots of content (that
| the search engine might index on) and a refresh to the main porn pages.

>From my experience search engines (google, av) will still index the page that
you redirect *to*. So it is useful for moving pages around if you don't have
access to httpd.conf, .htaccess files or PHP/Perl/etc.
