1. I've been a nationwide bride/groom wedding minister matching service. I match engaged couples with a local minister-associate of mine in THEIR ceremony site area. . . My plan now is to create 10 unique local sites each with a local-specific URL (e.g., dallasweddingofficiants.com, milwaukeeweddingofficiants.com, columbusweddingofficiants.com-- each with highly unique content info to the city in the URL).

2. There is only one action I want an engaged couple to do: fill out a form with their ceremony information (which is then emailed to me).

3. QUESTION: From a duplicate content point-of-view, is it better to have the same form as a separate page for each local site (10 local URL sites, each with same form page coming to my email address) * * OR * * better to not have the same form 10 times but to instead have on each a link on each local Home Page TO a generic form on a different site of mine, my nationwide site? All local sites linking to the same form on a different site. From a lead info point of view, it's the same either way for me because I end up with the info I need to serve the couple.

Anyone know the answer? If there is one.

It's called spamming.

It may be the same either way for you, but it's not the same either way for your customer. Who does a site visitor to dallasweddingofficiants.com think they're dealing with? If it's dallasweddingofficiants.com then have the form on that site, submitting to that site with all responses from that site. If, when it comes to actually dealing with someone rather than reading some unique content, that someone is centralweddingofficiants.com then put the form on that site. Or you could test both options to see which gave the higher conversion rate.


You don't have a duplicate content issue. However, I would question the wiseness of using multiple domains for this. Fair enough if you have other reasons for using multiple domains, but if it's just for the SEO benefit then you might want to re-think.
