according to this article... http://www.sitepoint.com/blogs/2005/0... if you have two sites showing the same content search engines read it as duplicate content which can hurt your website ranking. LOL, I have three sites with the same content. According to websitegrader and some articles I've been reading, my newly purchased domain counts as two sites... www. youcanneverbetoosmart. info and youcanneverbetoosmart. info as two separate sites. Also, I still have http:// youcanneverbetoosmart . synthasite .com published, which makes a third site with same content (according to search engines). How can I get the error message from website grader taken off? The error message indicates search engines may think www. mysite is different than mysite... this error message is not there with the subdomain site. Also, when I first published my site with the .info, if typing in www the site was redirected to godaddy .com but without the www it went to my site.

Solutions I'm looking for in brief:

To make search engines think www. youcanneverbetoosmart .info and youcanneverbetoosmart .info is the same site and

To get rid of http:// youcanneverbetoosmart .synthasite .com entirely - I really need to know that if someone types in this address if it will be redirected as quite a few visitors already know of this address.

Anyone with solutions and ideas, please let me know. Ranking high in google is practically my number one priority and it's going to be hard if I have two or more sites with the same content.

Also, if you go to http://youcanneverbetoosmart.info my website grader badge reads 39 and if you go to the same site at http://youcanneverbetoosmart.synthasi... my website grader badge reads 89. So they ARE reading different content, I think it has something to do with javascript and how they read the website you're currently on. Thought this might be of use in finding me a solution.
