I couldn't decide where this belongs and I ended up here. I have rasseled with this issue for some time with my own site. I have just picked up my first client (gotta start somewhere!). This site is a redo, they have several domain names all pointing to the same site. In all the places I have read, this is spam. When I survey my top competitors they have several domain names with exactly the same title and discription with the same content. On many search terms they could have 5 of the top 20 spots.
Is this spam? It is obvious that it can be done and is gotten away with. I need to be able to counsel my new client and make a decision as to whether it needs to be done just to compete.
I could use some advice from the group here.
