Mirrored Sites - Need Advice

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View


I am going to redesign a website. The owner of the site registered 2
domain names: 4-blahblah.com and four-blahblah.com. Right now, both
sites have identical contents. When I looked up their business name, the
4-blahblah.com site came up, but not the other one. Google has indexed
most pages for the 4-blahblah.com, but only 5 pages from the other

I know having mirrored sites is a No-No for search engine ranking. I'd
like to get your opinions on the best way to avoid further damage. I was
thinking of re-building the site and have it on the 4-blahblah.com. Not
sure what to do with the four-blahblah.com domain.

What is the purpose of having the same content for both domains?  Does he
simply want to make both domains go to his website?  If so, why not just
point one domain to the other and have only one set of files?

Put a redirect on every corrondsponding page to the other domain and
just let it stay active. That's what I did with a name change and both
increased in placement.
