Hi,
One of my clients runs his website on 2 different servers, in case one colapses the other one will work.
I would like to know how this could affect the SEO efforts and in which way.
Also,
another client used to link 2 different domains to the same hosting account. they had domain A which was performing better than domain B.
They wanted to promote domain A. i made a 301 redirect from domain A to domain B. Google scans the site but the Search results are very poor for domain B.
Usually after 2 months this type of site should perform way better than it does right now.
What do you suggest me to do?
THX

Assuming that only the primary web site is shown to the public and automatically fails over the backup server if the primary goes down, it's not necessarily a positive thing, but it can definitely prevent negative results. For example, if you only have 1 server and it goes down and the Googlebot comes to visit and sees the site down... Not good.
