Using Multiple Domains

Best Answer Jill , 04 February 2013 - 12:38 PM

Your best bet would be to simply 301 redirect them to your main site.

I'm somewhat new to this SEO stuff, so please forgive me.



I have a domain name and the website actually does reasonably well on google.


I also have a number of similar and slightly related domains... How can I put them to use with out having a negative effect on my ranking?



Please let em know if more details are needed.

Or you can start these sites separately and linking them to your main sites to further improve the traffic. Of course, this way it would take more time and effort than just simply redirecting them.

Frankly, that's a terrible idea. It wasn't a good idea Back In The Day, and now in a post-Panda, post-Penguin world it's even worse advice, IMO.


Look, it's time-consuming enough maintaining and optimizing one website. And unless those other domains are filled with quality content and have at least a few high-quality links pointing to them, they're not going to do one iota of good for the main site. The "feeder" sites can only give as good as what they've got. Without thick content and strong links, they don't have much to pass along.


A site owner would be much better served to put that good content directly on the main site, and work to get those high-quality links pointing directly to the main site. There's no benefit to be gained by routing anything through a bunch of secondary sites.


Unless you want to spend all your time working on your websites (and none of it working on your actual business), do what Jill suggests.
