Hey Everyone,

A friend brought me in to help on a project for the company he works with. Basically this is a huge company with 1,000's of locations. They currently have all the local listings set up through Google, Bing etc, but they want to start ranking through natural search for more terms. Each location is going to have it's own website (3-5 pages) ran through one central CMS.

So my questions related to organic placement...

1) We don't want to run into duplicate content issues, so should we just have the homepage of each site be unique, and then have the contact and about us page noindex?

2) Will search engines have any issues with all the websites being hosted in one place?

3) Any other ideas on how to do this correctly?
