Does anyone know how to add other domains to your primary site domain that will enable the site to be found in google searches? I know you can do this with a meta tag but once you have pasted one code in for your primary site, if you add another will it be added too or will this disrupt the primary meta tag code??

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hi Kelly,

I've just answered your question in Support and let you know that one of my colleagues will get back to you to confirm.

As far as I know, if you have one site published to many domains, the domain that is primary is the one that will need to be verified and will be listed in the search engines.

Thanks for your reply!

I know this info but I need to have the other domain names bring up my website when searched in search engines. Without having to build the site over and over with each domain name. google requires you to verify by pasting the code into index page but i need to know if this will effect my primary site address's listing in google searches.

Hello,

I have just responded to your support request that was sent via email. To answer the question here as well:

If you have more than one domain name for the same site you can publish each of these domains to the site and make one the primary domain, this is then what will show up in the search engines and this is the way it should be.

You don't want to have duplicate sites on the Internet with the same content all published to different domain names, you just want to have one, assign the domains, and make one the primary. This would be the domain that you verify with Google Webmaster.

You can easily assign (publish) these domains to one of your sites by accessing the Advanced Domain Settings.

For more information and steps, please take a look at this link: Assigning domains and creating a primary domain.

Please note: If you have a domain purchased from another domain registrar, it will need to point to Yola in order to work. Steps available here: Publish to a domain you already own.

I hope this is helpful!
