I own many domain names related to my business. Would I have a problem with Google if I made one-page websites with good related copy on these domain names and linked the one-page websites back to my main website?
Thank you for your time.
You wouldn't be in trouble, because you can put whatever sites you want online, but I doubt that it would help to bring any targeted traffic to your website, unless you thought people were typing the domain names directly into their browsers.
As I've said in the newsletter and forum nearly every day for the past 10 years, you're much better off having one great, all-encompassing website than lots of little doorway domains. It's one of the oldest tricks in the book that Google is well aware of.
