A question of Multiple Domain Names

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.

Thanks
David

It's spam. Instead of counselling your clients to do it, instead report the spam to the search engine that has the offending problems. You'll move up five spots when the competitor gets banned.

Heh! Ditto what Xoc said. Just be sure to change the content on your duplicates before you sound the alarm. All's fair....

Figure out a way to logically separate out the content. Put subject A on domain A...etc. Then cross link them seamlessly. Or possibly use "low impact" frames with frame set on site a pointing at content on site b...

What do you mean by "low impact" frame?
