I just purchased 3 domains for a spin off mowing business specializing in low cost basic lawn service (My main company specializes in high end maintenance and installs). I will link them to my main site but want them separate. The domains are www.mowCity1.com, www.mowCity2.com, and www.mowCity3.com (three major cities that I plan to service). I've read that I'll be penalized by Google for building three separate sites that are very similar (only locale information different on sites). I've read it's better to make one site and to forward the others to that address using a 301 permanent redirect. I want to see SEO benefit from having a domain with a keyword and city in the title. Is this possible using a redirect? Any suggestions will be very appreciated. I'm looking for advice from people with Google SEO knowledge. Thanks guys.
