    Hi BHW,
    I have about 15 domains.
    1 of them is my main domain.
    Should i use a 301 redirect to redirect them to my main site.

    OR

    can i upload my main site - ie - database, files etc (so it will look exactly the same) - to each of my other domains? Will Google do me for dupe content even though there on different domains?


    Regards

    Dr.Pepper

    Out of to two options you should redirect your domains, you would get slapped with dupe content if you had 15 domains with the same content indexed.

    Is there actually more benefit to redirect them than not redirect them?
    what i mean is are there any drawbacks to re directing using 301?

    Depends really, if the other 14 domains are just new, never been used, then yeah there wouldn't be any drawbacks. If the domains were indexed and have been slapped with penalties in the past then stuff like that gets past along with 301 redirects so id be careful. Depends really what your hoping to achieve in the end.

    Thankyou for the responses.

    Another question is,
    As my other domains are all domains with exact keywords in (im sure theres a term for that), would it be best using that as a money site with adsense on etc as a bit of extra cash on the side? Or building a one page site with links to my main site which is where i want everyone to go
