  1. Correct, there are many solutions to "present" the data without having to physically store the data in more than one place, however once presented in the browser all references to how the data got there are removed and thus not viewable by the spiders/crawlers.Can anyone refer me to a site that uses SOAP to present off-site data?SOAP may be my answer, however I don't know where to look to see it in action.
  2. Search engines won't ban due to duplicate content, however duplicate/mirrored content is clearly marked as a no no in both Yahoo and Google guidelines, thus impact your ranking.In addition, having the content referenced directly to the source, rather than presented it after pulling it, not only will we avoid penalty, we'll increase our parent site's popularity.
  3. Well, that's my quandry.I can use a webservice to present the data, but once in the browser there is no reference to where the data came from, making it duplicate, not resourced.
  4. Sorry. Like I said. I might be barking up the wrong tree. I was hoping someone out there would have experience with a similar situation.Basically, we have a booking website, www.reservebranson.com, that has an intranet system whereas travel suppliers, hotels and ticketed attractions, load product descriptions. That information is housed and displayed through our parent site, reservebranson.comThen, we support other travel based websites with a private label solution. This gives these sites the same features and functions as the parent site but under their company's website brand. This system lives on a secondary URL, creating a stand alone site, seperate from the parent.Because of this, the travel supplier content is duplicated. This duplication or mirroring is looked down upon the search engines. So, we are looking for a solution to display that content through some sort of XML giving credit for the content to the parent site without having to leave the child site.Make any sense?
  5. Thought of iframe, but my concern is the burden of code would defeat the benefit of the search engine. We have some iframe functions on our site, but they are dependent upon javascript to display which kills the se benefit.
  6. We need the site visitor to view the content but not leave the child site to do so. This means no standard links or even RSS feeds as those as basically links out as well.Maybe I am barking up the wrong tree.
  7. Keep in mind I am a novice. It's not a matter of getting the content from one site to the other, it's the concept of "referencing" the content so as not to mirror the content. Ideally, the XML would reference the URL and file of the source of content being displayed.Still thinking web service?
  8. Scenario: We operate a web based booking engine that generates product content dynamically utilizing product ID numbers and types. This data is stored in a central database utilizing an ASP mark up. We too operate secondary branded websites that duplicate our booking engine under a new "skin" or brand for affiliated relationships. This content mirrors our current booking engine.We are trying to discover a situation whereas we could generate the product information through XML which would give credit to the parent site for the content rather than the search engines penalize us for duplicating product.Can anyone offer any input?
