SE Spamming or not?

Msg#: 531 posted 9:14 pm on Apr 8, 2002 (gmt 0)

Recently we have purchased approximately 15 new domain names/urls through dotster and have forwarded them to our site. these new url's all consist of keywords pertinent to our site -when you key in these url's in the navigation bar, it brings you to our site - but whatever url you have typed in remains displayed in the bar.

Can we proceed to submit these new urls that are forwarded to the one main site for indexing to the SE's or is this considered spamming? I have tried to find the answer myself but am not sure if this constitutes mirror sites, doorway sites, or nothing? We are doing alright in the engines, but hope to improve. However i am terrified doing something like this may get us blacklisted and we'll end up destroying the company....

Please advise what we should do ????

thanks so much,

Kelly welcome to webmaster world

each persons view of spam is different and ultimately its the search engines decision in this case. IMO they would perceive this as spam, purely because you wish to artifically inflate your traffic

If you were to have one domain with everything that you intended to host within this domain, then the site should get rewarded "accordingly" by the search engines

My phrase is "don't get greedy with your share of the pie" so to speak :)

I have also purchased several domain names which all point to the same site. But I do it to help people who misttype the name, not for search engine results. I only submit my mail URL to the engines.
