Too Many Url's
Posted 08 September 2003 - 09:28 AM
Thanks Jill for a fantastic forum, been lurking around for a while soaking up all this fantastic help and info.
I am optimising a site for my company that has a url which they bought in March, however in the engines SERP's its their old url which keeps showing up for certain keywords and now they want the new url to show up.
There are many different url's that the company had previously bought and pointed the website to, there are no redirects just many url's pointing to the one site.
So my question is without getting rid of the old url how do i improve the ranking of the new url when both url's use the same website ?
thanks in advance

I would firstly decide what url you would like to use then do a permanent redirect to it from the other's
Duplicate content on different url's could possibly get you banned or penalised.
I am in the process of doing exactly the same thing, its taken a week to get my head round it but I think I'm almost there.

Well, it doesn't matter when you do a permanent redirect. Does it?
We've had to do the same thing. Our parent company name changed a while back and so the domain name did too. It's very important to contact all sites linking to the unwanted domains and update them with the correct url or the search engines will continue to cache the old domains in search results.

I believe eventually the SE's will update to the new domain but it's a good idea to try to get the incorrect links changed. It's a good opportunity to possibly get the link text changed as well.

And, Hi this is a forum!
So reffering link text matters? Let's say I have a site about crocodile skin called croco. It is better when am reffered as [link] Croco - crocodile skin [/link] then just plain [link] Croco [/link] ? Good to know ..
