Due to an 8 hour outage yesterday at our web host, the boss inquired about having a 2nd site to switch to in the event this happens again...
(this has only happened once in 5 years...so I'm like... REALLY?)
So, I started looking into DNS failover solutions...(sigh)
Any opinions on the SEO aspects of this type of solution?
Here's how I perceive the problem during a failover:
G or B goes to index a page on regular site A, something catastrophic happens, and now requests are being directed to site B.
Now the SE finds a different IP, and duplicated content. Just sounds like a disaster in the making..
Any opinions on the ramifications of this kind of setup?
thanks in advance!
