Good afternoon everyone,
i wanted to find out a few things on behalf of a friend. He currently has a web development company and builds and sells eCommerce stores and occasionally he builds one for himself as well.
He currently has 4 online, 2 x sex toy shops, 1 camera shop and 1 x paint shop. He wants to build another camera shop and another paint shop but is weary Google will blast/penalize him for this, even though the images and seo will be completely different. The sex toy shops are totally different as well and is at least ranking. The names and everything including email accounts etc will all be different. so my question is -
1. Will Google penalize him for creating and designing more websites?
2. Will he be fine because his seo, marketing and images will all be different?
Hi @Dylan C,
Google does not penalize businesses for the being entrepreneurs, so simply owning more than one company, brand or website is not an issue.
What can be is using the same copy, images, wording, etc.. and I would not use the same IP Address for them all. They each should be unique, with unique company names, phone numbers, etc.. and everything will be fine.
Google is pro business, they just want legitimate and truthful actions, so play it straight and enjoy the journey.
