302 in Google looks Bad again.

I have been testing a new Banner – PPC tracking system it’s closed beta at the moment. but the system allows Html Banner ad’s which we split test the text you can see an example here www.davidnaylor.co.uk/v10-html-banner.html the system uses either a straight link text or 301 which of course would influence search engines, but we were happy in our own minds that if the links were internal then that was cool. The system also has a optional switch of a 302 (that’s it default) so not to mess with the search engines… But today I searched for “search marketing” in Google and noticed two listing without snippets (usually means a redirect or something bad)

I have hi lighted in yellow on the image below:

header checks show 302 redirects :
