Hi there, Google's Guidelines for Webmasters says: "Don't create multiple pages, subdomains, or domains with substantially duplicate content." ://www.google.com/webmasters/guidelines.html Regardless of who creates the content, having two identical pages appearing in the search results is of no benefit to the searcher or Google - so Google tend to ignore duplicate content. The content of your site is basically a duplicate of this page: http://www.wizardacademypress.com/shopexd.asp?id=199 Your Options ------------ a) Get the other site to remove the page or block it from Google's index by using a Meta Robot tag or robots.txt file -- or -- b) Change the content of your site so that it is no longer substantially similar ... and then resubmit both webpages: ://www.google.com/addurl.html Best wishes, robertskelton-ga
