Hello,

I am want to park a dot net domain name on top of the dot com site. Would it be causing duplicate content penalty? what's the best SEO approach to forward another domain to existing one?

Thanks,

Staffan

Yes it might, depending on how it's done.

The best way to go about this is to host the .net domain and do a 301 permanent redirect to your main site.

I would love to know if Google flips out if it sees "too many" 301's to one domain. I have registered many variations of my domain, yet I'm afraid to 301 them; I'm not sure what the Google gods would think. Any insight?

You can have as many 301 redirects as you like pointing at a site. The 301 redirect says "don't list me, only list the target URL".

You do not need any separate server space for the .net site. Point all domains at the same server space. In that server space, have one .htaccess file that has the following redirects set up:

domain.net --> www.domain.com
domain.com --> www.domain.com
www.domain.net --> www.domain.com

Anyone arriving at the server asking for the wrong thing is fed the redirect containing the correct location. They then come straight back, but as they are now asking for the right thing, they are let in to access the content.

Use WebBug to check the server response codes for each URL variation.

g1smd,

That tip is a lifesaver! :)

I did not know that.

Thanks!
