What possible benefit do you think you will get from a mirror site?
Are there not enough examples of penalties from this ancient black-hat tactic to give you pause and realize you shouldn't try to cheat or hide or cloak it?
You're still risking it, big time. Never know when GoogleBot shows up drunk at your site and grabs everything, robots.txt or no robots.txt :)
gotta be EXTREMELY careful as Google sees them as dupes. Your index page might be hit with a dupe penalty if Google sees it
I have a PR 6 site 6 years old with thousands of natural and relevant backlinks.. some time ago we syndicated the content to partners by wrapping their templates around a URL that was ours. Obviously a stupid mistake...but it was an innocent mistake. The site has always been a fun hobby and we never even watched SERPs / knew what to do or not to do.
Anyways, the syndication has since been ended so in essence we've 'cleaned up' the site. We still rank OK for certain terms but a lot of our true content is now in the supplemental index.
Tried a reinclusion request just a few days ago.. do i have a hope in the world?
Thanks for the help.
I hear the 'duplicate penalty' as a returning warning. If I'm thinking logically, from the searcher perspective, why would Google punish that site because a technique is useful for internal interests? isn't it just for Google to group/filter out the least ranked with equally url? I mean have more urls that gives same content, why is that a cheat in a search engine?
