    Ok, I guess this is the best place to post this question.

    I have a client that has about 20 domains. The site is like 1-800-Flowers.com, but it's 1-800-Whatever.com.

    As I understand it correctly, the physical site should only exist on one domain, while the other 19 domains should server-forward automatically. This is because the search engines consider this spamming, and it would be a mess to update 19 sites at once.

    So, if you look at www.1-800-flowers.com, you'll see that the it does not foward to www.1800flowers.com until you click something in the main nav. But if you click a product listing in the main content area of that page, it stays on the hypenated site, and back and forth throughout the site.

    What's the protocol here? It seems they are doing it both ways unless I'm mistaken. Does Prakish visit these boards? I'm not saying anything is wrong with it, I just need to know the best way to approach this and 800flowers was the best example.

    Well, if it was me I'd just use domain forwarding. You set it up on the DNS and it will make the extra 18 domains all redirect to the main one. If they really want to have 19 seperate sites, they'll probably need a dedicated server.
