Duplicate sites in top 10
.com and .co.uk listed

 3:06 pm on Dec 2, 2004 (gmt 0)

Just checked on some KWs I follow and found one of my competitors sites listed 1 and 4 for exactly the same page but once for .com and once for .co.uk.

I thought they had a thing called the dupe filter for this kind of thing.
Maybe this wasn't subtle enough to be picked up!

Anybody else seen this behaviour?

Yes, I have. Happens frequently in our SERPS. Has for years.

I have loads of unintentional listings like this. It's inevitable it should happen with successful sites and multiple domains across a widget-specific industry.

It's obvious enough for the average searcher to ignore.

i've also noticed some duplicate site which rank adjecent to each other on the SERPs. Sometimes i think whether duplicate content panely etc kind of things really apply.
Most of the results on google nowadays are cloaked or otherwise manupulated.

we have a competitor that is ranking well for .com and .net exactly the same entire site.

competitor with about 10 times in the top 20 with exactly the same page under different TLD.

.de .be .it .nl .co.uk .com .net and some others.

Code is 100 percent identical.

Have been this way for years. Just do your best to rank NUMBER 1 and you don't care who is number 2 to 10 ;)
