notworthy.gif Hello guys! I'm new to High Rankings after discovering quality SEO topics and solutions in Google SERP, so I did the right thing and signed up!

I've been SEO'ing for about 3 years now but never ever messed around with pointing domains and testing the results thereof. So I need you to help me out with something here.

Lets say I have (W) my website and its domain and (D) I have gone and registered three DOMAINS.

(W) - Website
(D) - 3 newly registered and pointed domains

I've done some DNS pointing with the A and WWW records for all three new domains. So now when you go to (W), everything is still the same which is a good thing. When you go to (D) it shows my site but with the entered domain still displaying in the address bar.

How would search engines rank these new domains (D) since it now basically has (W)'s content on it? And as I'm suspecting, if the search engines does index (D) does this mean duplicate content?

They would likely just choose one domain that they thought was the real one and index that. They may mistakenly index some pages of the others which would potentially split your PageRank.

It's preferable to 301 redirect the additional domains to your main one.

Thanks Jill!

But what if the domains were registered specifically because they contain important keywords? Would a 301 redirect help with the rankings of those keywords or is the only other alternative to actually get content published onto that domain and then to stick a one way link back to the main site?

You're wasting your time and energy on doorway domains. It's considered web spam by google. Work on your real site instead.

I am assuming that you are talking about pages that have some content on them. But what about pointing a parked Domain with no content to your website. For example, say I have a website mywidgets.com and a parked domain bluewidgets.com. In the control panels they allow you to enter a URL for that parked domain. Say blue widgets are popular and people do type that into the search engines. Is this the same as a 301? or is it considered spamming?
 
Similar, say I had a website mywidgets.com and a page in that website mywidgets.com/bluewidgets.html. And I pointed my bluewidget.com parked domain to mywidgets.com/bluewidgets.html
 
Thanks.

No and pretty much, yes

 

 

 

Similar, say I had a website mywidgets.com and a page in that website mywidgets.com/bluewidgets.html. And I pointed my bluewidget.com parked domain to mywidgets.com/bluewidgets.html

 

Waste of time, once a redirect is in place the redirected name ceases to exist, and if they are NOT redirected they are duplicates.

 

Use the names for PPC marketing or "brand protection" yes, for "SEO" absolutely NOT!
