Will affiliate sites with same testimonials get de-indexed? eleventy msg:4516268 11:38 am on Nov 6, 2012 (gmt 0) Hi I have a potential client who wants his site optimised. He has 3 business associates in different countries, each operating similar websites, selling similar products. The problem is they are all displaying the same customer testimonials. I think this is plain old dupe content that needs to be fixed. What do you guys think? They've been doing fairly well is the SERPS for a high competition niche for the last 5 years. eg. the UK site is 8th in G for primary keyword phrase.

If you have 100 pages of great content and 1 page is duplicate content, then its no big problem. If you have a 3 page site and 1 page is duplicate content, then you have a big problem. I would also wonder how effective your testimonials are if you are showing the same testimonials regardless of what country your visitor is coming from. eleventy msg:4518236 7:57 am on Nov 12, 2012 (gmt 0)
Hi goodroi, many thanks and sorry for my delay replying. He has 37 indexed pages with one page of duplicate testimonials. Thanks again phranque msg:4518262 10:49 am on Nov 12, 2012 (gmt 0)
welcome to WebmasterWorld, eleventy! are these all on different ccTLDs? eleventy msg:4518689 10:21 am on Nov 13, 2012 (gmt 0)
Hi phranque, thank you :) It's great to be here. when I initially posted I knew of 3 sites all on different ccTLDs, but this morning I have been informed of another site meaning there are now 2 .co.uk in the mix :(
