    If by "mirrored" you mean duplicate content then you are going to have a very difficult time. I'd start by tuning all the titles, meta descriptions, headings, URLs, and content... make sure everything is targeted and unique. Then you'll be golden. :)

    Otherwise use canonical annotations to the main website and just know that any SEO you do benefits the main site.

    It would not be good for SEO.
    when someone search google it is likely both website will appear on the search results.
    Google will not like this.
    So change the titles and contents.

    For SEO purposes, you are probably going to be starting with a tremendous disadvantage.

    As the previous posters have mentioned, you are starting off with a lot of duplicate content.

    With that said, you can still gain a tremendous amount of value from the mirrored site, how?

    By simply thinking outside of the box.

    Instead of using SEO, focus more on branding and social media reach.

    You'd be surprised as to how much of your company's content may not be found on social media.

    If you add on top of this a value-added persona brand, you may be able to drive quite a bit of interest in traffic.

    Don't think that just because you're dealing with duplicate content that your marketing efforts are dead in the water.
