Fairly easy in our area
All same content...
then we have <brandname>.TLD, respun the data into other pages, same data, different layout and page URL...so repeated up to 3 times on page 1
The worst one, we used to rank #3 for "brandname widget" now you get
<brandname>.com ( fair enough )
repeat different placenameinusa I have never been to for the next 30 places in the SERPS!
it is a franchise - but I'm in the UK and likely to want the UK franchise holder I think
<awebsite>.com .. just repeated several times for different pages
Google is a registrar - can't be rocket science ! <edit> if you are a business , a future brand, you will not hide your details in whois, and you will show contact details on your website!</edit>
