    domain pointers and google

    My host, site5, which is a great host btw, offers 5 extra domain pointers. This allows me to host 5 domains under one same account. Each pointed domain will use a subdirectory under the main domain account, but its totally masked and doenst show in browsers. They say they don't use any scripts, but rather server settings.

    My question is: what drawbacks does such tactic has, in regards to google and other SEs? will google treat such websites any differently than it would if they were using a real domain hosting? Will it give it less indexing, less PageRanking etc..?

    Ideally Google will see your sites as separate websites. I am not too sure about pagerank boost or top rankings in search results but it is better to have a separate IP for each cusrtomer like in your case, because most webhost services host tens or hundreds of websites on a single IP. If one of these websites send spam or do a google jump in ranking using *not allowed* methods, google might block search engine listing of all websites hosted on the same IP.

    since it wont show its masked or anything (its like real hosting) it will be treated like any other main domain hosting.
