    I have a website that i want to clone and give a face lift. The sites are exactly the same content wise. I'm guessing i will get hit for duplicate content by google. How can i avoid this? Thanks.

    I believe if they have two different domains should be fine. There are several sites on the web with almost the same contents but different domain names.

    Yes domain will do something for that but what about content. They will again be considered duplicate.

    I have seen two web hosting sites with the same contents, but they are consider two different websites. So you should be fine.

    Same Contentwise

    Same Contentwise can work, but do not copy one site content directly into another. That will be considered duplicacy.

    Use robots.txt to tell the search engine bots not to visit that site/part of the site.

    I suggest not to duplicate your content. Google give more attention and love a unique than a duplicate. Best way is to add original content to it.

    If you have lots of links then you can rank duplicate content. Answers.com is basically Wikipedia with ads and they do fine. But it's harder to rank dupe content than original content.

    Why would you want two identical sites? You'll have a tough time ranking both for the same terms if you face any sort of competition. I personally would take each site in a different direction to target different terms with different content.

    Hi,

    Yes, I too agree with you as If you copy some content from other site then it may be not wise for your site.

    So, very first thing to keep in mind to gain visitor's attention and also the trust of Google to rank in a good position, is to make and have unique content for your site, which matters allot.

    Thanks!!
