Duplicate content, &filter=0 and allegra?
Duplicate content penalty and allegra?

 11:21 pm on Feb 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

I'm wondering whether this has anything to do with an Allegra update ranking loss on one of my sites.

For one site unaffected by the allegra update, when I type in [sitename...] into google, it shows up as the same backlinks as the [sitename...] version. So both urls are consolidated and viewed as the same site. Both have the same page rank, backlinks etc

This must have been done automatically by the hosting company as i havent a clue when it comes to tinkering with my apache settings.

Now when I look at the site slammed in the latest update, hosted somewhere else, I see that the http:// www version has a page rank of 6, whereas the http:// version has a page rank of 1.

So in the search engine's eyes they view these as two seperate web sites?

If I type in &filter=0 for the keywords I'm back at 1

I'm thinking this could be triggering a duplicate content penalty...I was advised a while ago to perform a 301 redirect on all my sites so the www would always show.....Disaster is waiting around the corner when you procrastinate.

Anyone else seeing this?

This is normal, and I don't think that they would trigger each other as dupe content, and even if they did, you'd notice that only 1 was gone, not both.

I suggest the 301 though.
