    i created a small website for a friend who bought ALL of the domain extensions to his site.
    .com
    .org
    .net
    .biz
    .......etc
    ALL of the domains forward to the .ORG where the actual site is at.

    SEO done on the site is VERY basic.
    however, for this one string of LTKW's its
    ranking really high...FOR THE .BIZ FORWARD?!?!?
    WTF???

    you search these keywords and the site comes up with the .biz domain
    which is nothing more than a forward to the .org site.

    completely beedazzled

    I don't see why this matters because your visitors will still be forwarded to the .org

    This. You made sure that all the trafiic goes there, so why bother if the visitor comes from Door #1 or from Door #2? He is still going to end up in that room.

    because its for a medical company and the search engine is showing a .BIZ domain.

    we all know that as for being clicked on or trusted ..that a .org/.com is going to be clicked on over a .biz.

    why would it even pick up the .biz is the mystery.

    was the .biz ever regged before, EVER?
    the age can play a factor.
    If not, do a backlink report on the .biz and see if it showed up anywhere.

    the .biz was registered and set to forward.
    thats it.
    i will do that backlink report now. should have thought of that first
    but im 99% sure there would be NO backlinks to that domain.

    EDIT: not a one backlink.
    this makes no sense. i dont even understand how a search engine would find a domain with nothing on it and is just forwarded.

    dupe content... use canonical tags on every page always... 301 don't credit the best canonical source... they could be scripted "catch all"s for "god knows why" as far as google knows... Until I'm blue in the face... canonical tag on every page wether you think you have a problem with dupe content or not... because you do until you put a canonical tag on every page.

    It is kind of strange. I would keep on building links to .org, maybe it is just a little bug in Googles alghoritem.

    but what is google crawling???
    how are they indexing sh*t??

    (having the .biz domain show is EXTREMELY unacceptable, that why im so up tight about wtf is going on here. funny how a web page that actually doesnt exist is beating out others)
