Multiple Domains Different Ips?
Posted 06 February 2004 - 02:46 AM
If I create sseparate different one page information based websites for all these domains which contain a link to the widget store in case visitors want to buy what is the best way to not get penalized. Do I need to multiple domains. I have heard 5 domains per ip is usually ok as long as the content is not duplicated. Please Advise. I'd love to hear you opinions.

But if the content is different, even more than 5 shouldn't really hurt.
I have a client who has 15 on the same IP.
Be careful that the content is not makeshift, but actually useful.

say you have 100 subdomains on the same IP all crosslinked definetely these type of techniques are spam and invites penalty, some sites are already penalized for heavy crosslinking on sub domains lying on the same IP address,
Also make sure not all the 70 domains are in the same ip range, like,
188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 etc
It is better to go for different hosting providers in different states possibly countries,

Personally, I would advise against the multiple domain approach. Single page domains aren't really "sites" in my view. While this technique used to work quite well, the search engines are getting smarter every day. So even if there's no penalty involved there's certainly no guarantee that the tactic will work next week.
Fact is, such a setup is much more expensive and labor intensive to pull off. Do you really want to run linking campaigns for 75 different domains when you could get the same results by doing it for 1? I don't, that's for sure!
My suggestion, forget about the multiple domains. Use those hours you would devote to 75 domains and build it all on one domain. Create some content for each of those 75 areas that is relevant and meaningful to your potential customers. The search engines, and your visitors, will like you a lot more.
Bottom line is that if you're doing something strictly in an effort to game the search engines, it will catch up with you eventually. Build for your customers and for the long term and you'll be much better off.

I side with Randy on this one. I know some people are getting away with having multiple domains but it will not be long lasting IMO. These type of strategies may do well for awhile but eventually either some tattles on them and the human element at a search engine gets involved or the search engine's automatic spam detectors pick it up. The end result is usually penalization or even removal and blacklisting of the domains.
Therefore if you are looking for a good long-term effect, build out the one domain/site. If you are looking for temporary success (maybe) then proceed with your multiple domain strategy but whether you will be successful at all or how long it will even last is not predictable.
Other than that, I doubt you'll get much advice here on how to successfully execute a multiple domain one page site strategy.

What Randy and SearchRank said.
Why would anyone be interested in a one-page site? You would appear to be much more professional to have an entire site, with each page devoted to the different aspect of your "widgets."
BTW, what's it like selling widgets?
Posted 06 February 2004 - 09:39 AM
However, I disagree. I think multiple domains help.
Let's have an example. Suppose he is selling blue widgets.
He buys bluewidgets.com. Gets the linking, SEO right.
Search engines do have a tendency to list domains if they have the keyword in them. I will totally agree that if you buy bluewidgets.com and build a one page website with no work going in, it should definitely be a negative impact and will dilute your brand. On the other hand, if you have a big website, doing nicely, mostly saturated with content, but you are looking to expand, you can get yourself a new website with a different set of keywords, which are related to your main website, but can build a new niche of market and ultimately drive your main website.
I'm doing it, its a successful business model.

Maybe not, but common sense tells me that the search engines cannot really want that sort of thing in their databases. I imagine that they are doing everything in their power to remove them, as we speak.

But however, useful content cannot be ignored in whatever form it may be.
Edit : And with that, i don't mean repetitive.

I have seen a few sites in my industry do it and it seems to be working very well for them. There main site has a page rank of 5. They then have 50 one page information sites that all have a page rank of 4.
These fifty one page information sites are totally different in content dealing with specific information about different widgets that the main site sells.These sites are purely information based but contain a links to the specific page where that widget they are explaining is sold on the main site. All the minis sites have 50 links to the other one page sites. The fifty domains seem to be split up into 10 different ips that are all different from the main site as well.
One thing I have noticed is that the main page only links back to one of the minis sites which in tern links to all of the others.
Thanks again for your informative input and for the kind welcome.

Unless you are going to get other links for all those pages, they won't have enough PR to count for much.

If the main point is to add keywords to the domain, creating subdomains with different names may be useful. It may also give your main domain some kind of brand recognition.

Are you looking for a technique that might help today, but might be banned tomorrow, or are you looking for a long-term strategy that will stand the test of time?
