Alternate domains or multi-shops for SEO?

Recommended Posts

If one has a shop selling widgets and fidgets under the domain shop.com, does it make sense from a SEO perspective to have either

  1. Domains widgets.com and fidgets.com that redirect to shop.com? or
  2. Domains widgets.com and fidgets.com with their own tb multi-shop only displaying these products/categories?

I would advise multi-shop. It is definitely better for SEO than alternative domains + much more comfortable for a store admin to manage, if, of course, your ecommerce platform provides for multistore management, like Magento.

Option 1 doesn't work from a SEO perspective. If it redirects (301), search engines will not take into account the keyword domains (only the shop.com)

I did not realize what you said until Traumflug pointed it out. Thirtybees works like a charm in multistore (We are using multistore ourselves) so no need for a so much expensive platform like Magento.
