Does having Mirror sites prevent appearance in search engine of both sites? RRS feed

  • Question


    I operate out of Australia and have two sites which are identical:


    www.healingmessages.net and www.healingmessages.com.au


    We created two sites so that local persons in Australia could use the .au site and international clients could use the .net site.  The content is identical and the files are sourced from the same web server location.


    99% of links to our site are to www.healingmessages.net and this is the site we have focussed all of our SEO towards.


    Being new to web design, I thought it would be good to have a domain for local clients & a worldwide domain for international clients.  It now seems that this may be harming our ability to be indexed in MSN seach engines?


    We do not appear in the search results at all at present, although we have had good success in the MSN seach previously?????? 


    We have had no trouble listing in other search engines.


    Any relevant comments would be greatly appreciated


    Best Regards
