True atlrus, but if a company owns multiple domains, but can't put their brand, name or logo somewhere on the site to vouch for the content, and ownership, and authorship, then why should that content be considered quality or unique - if they can't even vouch for it or stand behind it?
If I was trying to get bids on a service or product, and spent time filling out three forms from page one on google, from what I thought was from three different sites or companies - only to find out it was the same company after the fact, I would be pretty pissed for wasting my time, and possibly money.
If a big company doesn't have the cajones to stand behind information they put out their as being owned by them, I consider that a sign, among many that they are trying to work the system.
Most big companies like General Mills, Pepsi, etc at least put somewhere on the packaging or bottle that they own the sub-brand...claiming responsibility.
And, the products they put out under different brands are most often quite varied and unique.
Again, we're talking about repackaging the exact same thing, and not claiming responsibility for it, often commanding multiple clicks, or lead forms filled out, going to the same person or company. A disservice to all of the users in that niche in my view.
