I have several sites that use shared server hosting with the same hosting company. As part of a review to see if these sites need a Google disavow request, I've been testing <a backlink analyzer> and it is capturing inbound links in the format of ns2.hostserver2.net/page-name.htm
Enter that address in a browser and of course it resolves to the correct URL. However, <the backlink analyzer> is also finding ns2.hostserver3.net/page-name.htm and ns2.hostserver4.net/page-name.htm and ns2.hostserver6.net/page-name.htm etc etc … which also all resolve to the correct URL
To say I am confused is putting it mildly and my immediate thought is if a link management tool is reporting multiple addresses all resolving to one URL, is there a likelihood that Google would be seeing the same thing and treating it as duplicate content?
Appreciate any suggestions on what, if any, action is needed.
