    If I create 10 website all with the same content, and I want them all to appear on the top 10 search results for an easy keyword, can I do that? Will google not allow it because every website has the same exact content?

    When doing the SEO work, can I do all 10 websites at once. Instead of focusing on one website for whatever keywords. Can I do al 10 websites, for the one specific keyword? I don't really have the time to do all 10 individually, but I will do the work if i can do them all at once.

    I know absolutely nothing about Search Engine Optimization yet, I just decided I would learn and do the work if I can do this.

    Duplicate content is a complete no with Google. Don't even waste your time in building ten websites, only one will rank among them, or even that might get flagged for so much duplicate content all at once.

    duplicate content is a myth, dont bother much about it.
    However if you want to rank top 10 for your article, probably you can use web 2.0 and create backlinks to them like wetpaint, squidoo, hub, ezines and your main site

    that way is so much easier to dominate the 1st page with your keywords assuming not many competition.

    Do it and see what happens.

    Track everything.

    Learn from your mistakes, and discover something about SEO.

    If this is something you are counting on to pay your mortage, stop it, and go get a job.

    If this is something like a hobbie, then just be meticulous in your tracking details.

    Oh yeah, and don't use Google Analytics.

    Also do your best to put variation into your titles.

    There, just saved you maybe 2 months of testing. :)

    Here's a better idea:

    Make 1 website and do seo for that site by getting backlinks via social bookmarking and article directory links, etc.

    Then build a Squidoo, Hub Page, EzineArticles, ArticleBase, etc. platforms (basically put up content optimizing your keywords on those pages, not duplicate content), then get social bookmarks, article directory links, etc to those platforms.

    So this way your page 1 rankings for keyword would look like this:

    Number 1 Position - your site

    2 - your squidoo

    3 - your article base

    4 - your ezine articles

    etc.

    But you have to choose the correct keywords because this most likely will not happen due to potential high competition levels.

    If you wanna do your plan, then you'll deffo have to do different content. I'd recommend the pages like bobbylove recommended too. If you want to make them all websites, not squidoo, ezine, etc, then make sure they're all on different C classes of IPs and have unique content.

    I did something very similar to this where the first 4 sites that appear in the search results for selected keywords are all my sites. Different hosting/domains/content/etc. etc. I will tell you that it was no easy feet, but I'm definitely happy with the outcome and not to mention all the things I learned in the process.

    I would shoot for bobbylove321's suggestion first.

    White hat is a slow process (depending on your niche), but in the end I would say it was all worth it.

    That's a question of the technique you use :D

    Google search: Ranking 10 websites for the same keyword

    You'll find a part of this discussion at #1 placed there within seconds after publishing (ranking 10 websites; still first page). As you see, it is possible to rank well with dup content under certain circumsdances. And yes of cause a search with quotes will only show one site but I "take this place" for other, more competetive searches too (within a limit as long as no links are used to push).

    I personally would try with just 5 sites and optimise for 2-page listings which would cover the top 10 too.

    Hi, nice idea..
    If you have different content for each website then all of them can appear on Google. But maybe only a few of them get high rankings depending on the quality work done on them.

    My experience with a good blog setup is; they will rank for each post and you get your niche domination over time if you know your job and how to mix the targeted KWs. PR injection and or deep links can do the rest where needed.
