I've got a website with about 130.000 pages of content. What happens if I make a second website with the same content and I link each page on both websites to each other? Will Google punish me for this and lower my
ranking? Will Google notice this?
I've got to admit that I have already tried this one out a month ago and I don't see a change in my page rank (hence my questions above). Everyone involved with SEO warns me about the bad doorway pages can do to your page rank in Google, but I haven't noticed a thing.
So you have one site ... with lots of pages
And you want to make another site with the same pages
And link the pages together.
Erm .. why?
Or better question how is that of any value except to try to trick the engines.
I have to say and no offence intended .. if I found that your site (promoted like this) was keeping one of mine from a page 1 listing then I would probably help the SE dirty tricks dept find them a bit quicker than they might by their own automated methods :-)
My comment is not intended as offensive or anything ..
but you say you have how many is it 130 or 130000 pages?
If the second, how is it that you cannot organise the internals of one site to get ranking well for some of your target terms.
How is it that with a site that big you cannot get significant inward linking from quality sites.
If these pages are pages of quality content that people have some need for.. then I see little problem in developing and promoting the site as it is ..
That you feel you need another 130000 page site to link to yours .. to get the exposure / ranking you want well it suggests to me that your site is quantity of pages rather than quality :-)
I do wonder about the worth or value of your existing 130000 pages to internet surfers ...
Would that be unfair or not?
Otherwise I think you are treading on thin ice and will pay with both domains being filtered out.
Either Google will drop one site for having duplicate content or you'll have to wait an incredibly long time to see all the pages indexed, maybe your grandchildren will see the benefit.
It is better to focus your time on building the site's interial linking structure and get links from other sites. If you really 130K pages of good content, then it should be really easy to encourage others who will see the benefit of your content to link to you.
