Lets say there is an existing wesite that was never submitted to the search engines. Then a parked domain is added to this website. Which domain would score higher with the search engines, the origional domain or the parked domain?

Domain names without a parking page usually point to a holding page, which google will ignor as not being unique.

I have about 5,000 domains pointing to the same place e.g http://www.designsfromparadise.co.uk

Does this help with link popularity and PR?

Or is it just a way of having many doorways to your main site?

It may only help in Google (Not Yahoo!, which is not coping very well with the redirect at the moment) if:
- redirection is a 301 ( permanent )
- The redirected domains have some links pointing towards them
Cheers,

All the pages are on the same IP range, so I don't think it makes any difference.

I do get a lot of traffic from them as they act as a sort of advert for my sites services.

IMO, If all the links were pointing at the same site, you would be better off

Sorry,

I meant that there is only one holding page, so Google is likely to only list one of the domains. I had thought about setting up unique pages for every domain name, but that is too much work for the likely benefit.

Hi,

The translation service I used let me down. Always interested in quotes, but its not a high priority.
