    Hello friends. I am now in process of building an online business and planning to buy 2 domains since I need both 2 keywords. But I am confused if its good for seo when I have 2 different domains goes to same content by domain parking.

    fist domain will be main base. The second will park to main domain. So does Google takes them as double content ? Or what is a better solution ?

    Why not just target both keywords with one domain?

    Is your domain a brand or just keywords?

    Don't use 2 domains. There's a long list of reasons as to why that is, but I can assure you that you should do the following.


    keyword domain --> company domain

    Avoid doing this excessively as it may trigger a penalty if you build too many links through domains that 301 redirect. However, if you have 100 domains that 301 redirect to your firm, that's fine just keep the inbound links coming from a limited number of domains and ideally it should be focused on your primary domain. That is unless you're trying to do some high risk black hat tactics, but that's a story for another day. ;)

    Base domain is a brandname the second is keyword. So I cant target both keywords in one domain.

    So it is better to use one domain for unique content and the other keyword domain as wordpress or something like that :)

    Thank you for advices.
