    Default What is the advantage of having multiple domains?

    Hello,

    My background is in the online dating industry where I employed multiple domains and excessive crosslinking to get high rankings (esp. in Yahoo). Recently, this tactic has backfired for us in a big way as Yahoo has banned all of our dating sites that use this crosslinking technique). I believe it is only a matter of time before Google does the same.

    So, with that in mind What is the advantage of having multiple domains and cant you accomplish the same results with a single domain to which ou continually add content and promote consistently?

    More virtual "real estate" to target different keywords? I have multiple domains to try and find winning search engine placements. However, I do struggle with duplicating my content and the potential penalty.

    I own about 30+ gambling domains.... All are using the same php script and template..... I changed the text and metatags on all the domains...
    The sript uses a mysql database and puts every time the startpage is loading another listing by chance on the frontpage... All domains using the same database... that really saves some time, i just update the listing in my database and the changes are immediatly on all the sites....
    THANKS MY SQL

    I have no problems with SE's at all with banning me for duplicate content... I think the script is the Key to it.... the SE sees everytime new content the robot crawls my sites...

    check it at: http://www.casinos.sc/
    every time you reload the site the listing under "Casino by Chance" will change.

    Almost all my domains are indexed by google, msn, yahoo.... and have some top and decent positions... at least in german engines.. I didn't notice any penaltys or exclusions for about a year now.... They getting better and better...

    I think that is probably because my sites are hosted on a german server..
    they even show up in german listings on top even the most sites are in engl.

    but I'm on the way to get to the ground with that.. I just got me a server in the states and will put some of my domains there... then we will see whats going on with my site and a american IP...

    I only can suggest a decent php script..

    Cheers

    From my experience you can only effectively target one competitive keyword per domain.

    I would say the same like casinoranking, but somtimes it works in both ways..
    My subdomain http://www.sportsbook.bonuscasinos.com has Top Position on both, "sportsbook" and" sportsbooks" in msn.de

    I would like to get that also with my other domains and keywords but that's not working.... anyway, thanks for the input..
