    Default Mulitple Domains on one account

    1. How does a search engine work when you have several domans point to one account? 2. Does it index each domain name if submitted? Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm not sure, but intuitively I'd say it indexes both but the major search engines probably have some way of checking to make sure that both don't show up in a search since they are the same site. I could be wrong.

    If a more than one domain names point to the same page then they will not all be indexed. Search engines exclude duplicate pages, and consider them as spam. As such I would suggest that you create individual sites that allow you to use each of your domain names to their fullest. You have the opportunity to gain more traffic by creating unique and individual sites. But once again, search engines won't index duplicate pages.

    Post 301 redirect

    You need to set up a 301 redirect for each domain name.

    Use this code ( below ) in the .htaccess file

    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yourdomain\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    Hope this helps

    I recently bought two .info domain names to do this exact thing - link them to my main sight. I have already added them to my site and have them linked directly to the main site. My intention is to develop 2 different index pages with specific key wording and link them to the main site.

    My current main site - www.HerkimerCrystalsOnline.com
    Just added - www.HerkimerDiamonds.info
    and www.HerkimerCrystals.info

    My current possition with SE's is good, both Yahoo & Google.
    Do you all believe Daji's statement still holds true? Have I done possible harm to my current rankings?

    I would really appreciate any input into this predicament.
    Sincerely,
    Kimberly

    Thumbs up

    Bethlk's instructions (in this thread a little further up this page) and code to add into the .htaccess file also works great if you want to have www. in front of your domain displayed even if someone typed domainname.com (without the www) into their browsers address bar or clicked a link from another web site that did not create the link with the www. in front of your domain name.

    With the rewrite rule, all hits/visits to the domain name without the www will be redirected using a 301 redirect to www. .

    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yourdomain\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    .
    The grass may not always be greener on the other side, but is just might have less weeds.

    Dahj is refering to sites that have duplicate content. I think from what you've desribed, you going to have seperate and unique index pages that will be visible by users browsing to each site. Those index pages will contain normal links (not redirects) to the main site. As long as your content is not the same on any two or more sites then your safe from duplicate content problems and the pain that accompanies it in terms of rankings.
