I am currently working on my baby... yes, doing SEO for my own site! It feels good to work on myself for a change.
MY site is a 3 word keyword phrase kw1-kw2-kw3.com. I used to have 1st-kw1-kw2-kw3.com. Embarassingly, I messed up and registered 1st-kw1-kw2-kw3mispelled.com as well. Now that yahoo is googled, I wont be using these URL's.
So now I have 3 url's that are keyword dense and on topic.
What I've done is placed a stripped version of my main site's topics FAQ at those other 2 URL's, and each of those sites have a link at the bottom to kw1-kw2-kw3.com, as well as the other 2 big players in the industry, the manufacturer, and their individual product page for what I am promoting, which is a seperate URL.
I feel that these info sites, while SEO'd, also offer a good service in providing good info. I also feel like I may be missing a pitfall here if i don't watch out.
Now, I've noticed another info page on the same topic very similar to mine spring up, and I can tell its from a SEO company. It seems they dont have a link to their client yet, or perhaps they are waiting to add it when they need to direct traffic somewhere.
Should I be waiting to add a link to my main site later, and having the link now is maybe inviting closer inspection?
Are my info pages a good idea, or should they both or one be a mirror?
I've considered keeping a fully working version at both URL's, and not just a info page.... thoughts on that? I don't want to get in trouble for dupe sites.
Should the 2 info pages be linked together at all?
The more i read here the more I tweak, and i find myself, after months of work on this site, checking googles future search every morning for signs of spidering... this suspense is worse than last nights "24" cliffhanger. :)
The idea of linking to a few similar sites is also good because it does not directory associate you with the pages that in effect could be classed as cleverly devised doorway pages.
It's just a good way of gaining extra Pr to your mnain site by getting as much PR as possible to the sub sites that link to your homepage. I think i woudl also host the other domain on a different server to avoid the chanced of googlebot picking up in the same ip address.
hope all goes well :)
