Hey guys I posted in the google thread but I think that was the wrong spot. Sorry new to the forum.. Needless to say here is what I was asking.
I am the owner of a company that has a website that is actually 2 companies with different URLs. One is .com and the other is co.uk, but the company has the same name. On both of the websites there is duplicate content. We have a US company and UK company. Basically I have to have 2 shopping carts so there is no way around it due to them being separate companies but selling the same products (for the most part). To make matters worse there are a lot of links back and forth between the 2 websites because we have a TON of educational content.
With that said I have been told that having duplicate content is not good. Is this true? If so how do other companies deal with this?
