I have 3 web sites, with 3 different URL.
The problem is that the 3 web sites are using the same files on the same server. The domain name the visitor came from is recognized and the appropriated text is displayed.
To optimize these sites, i need to display an optimized text on the index page (made with frames) that is different if the URL is www.site1.com or www.site2.com (the dynamic page do this work). And the optimized text also gives links to the appropriated pages for each domain name.
My question is :
Can this site be considered as cloacked because the same file is used for every domain name and display different content according to the domain name?
Can this be considered as cheating by search engines?
Hope you understand me,
Sorry for my english, i'm french :-))
I wouldn't call this cloaking, because search engine bots will see the same text as humans.
However, you could have some problems if all three sites are actually hosted on the same IP address. I have heard of certain search engines being confused by this.
Also, Google may become suspicious if the three websites have similar content.
