    We have a bunch of sites. Last december we had two linked to the same merchant, and Google dinged one of them. That is the only reason I can see for the punishment, and I read here once that Google will only rank one site if you have more than one linked to one merchant.

    Not listening to my better judgement, we linked two sites to the same merchant again, and sure enough, one was just dinged. My question is, how does Google know that we own both sites? They are on different servers. Do they have someone looking up site ownership??

    Google doesn't read your merchants. It reads content. so if you 2 pages almost identical, yes it could mean getting one if not 2 dropped. And of course linking them together, it reads together, and most likely one was considered spam.

    Makes sense. I don't consider it spam because the sites come up under different keywords (or did), but Goolge probably does.
