View Full Version : Redirect URL's
12-19-2003, 04:32 PM
One of my main sites which I administer ( www.pembdirectory.co.uk - a portal site for Pembrokeshire UK ) has several redirect URL's ( www.pembrokeshirelinks.co.uk & www.westwalesweb.com ). The main site is getting good rankings but the redirect URL's are nowhere to be seen. What is the best way of setting up these other URL's to obtain good rankings too?
PS - Pembrokeshirelinks.co.uk is a pure redirect, while westwalesweb.com is an actual domain which refreshes to the main site.

You may want to reference the:
"GOOGLE Ranks the other search engines! – Explain this!"
Thread in this Forum.
In their Guideline's Google are specific about not creating multiple domains (a lot of sites do it, but given they are againt the quality guidelines, you run the risk of a ban ... if you get caught). What you are doing is called SPAM.
www.pembdirectory.co.uk and www.pembrokeshirelinks.co.uk seem to be exactly the same and you may have been hit with a duplicate content penalty.
The only way the the other URL's can rank well is if you get links to them ... you are better off getting those links to your main page.
My advice is to get permamanet 301 redirects from each URL to the main one (Google recommend this) and forget about promoting the others.
