Google Two Laptops

Google’s John Mueller was requested about whether it is okay with Google Search to have a web site with the identical title as one other web site on the web. John mentioned he couldn’t give authorized recommendation round copyright points however he mentioned in the case of Google Search and search engine optimization, it’s superb.

John was requested, “By likelihood, I found that there’s a web site that has the identical title as mine, however its web site handle is totally different, the language of its web site is totally different, and the subject of the web site is totally different. Is that this thought of a violation of Google’s legal guidelines?”

John replied, “There are many websites which have comparable names (there are lots of high degree domains, so it happpens that somebody makes use of the identical “title” on a unique high degree area). That is superb, there is not any rule in opposition to it from us. I am unable to assist with copyright or trademark (or different authorized) points, so when you suppose that is an issue, you would be greatest off checking with a lawyer.”

Yea, the problem could be extra round authorized points and that might fear me greater than the search engine optimization or Google points.

And if you’d like your web site to come back up first in your firm title and somebody extra established makes use of that title, you may be out of luck as properly.

For my part, change the title of your organization if it’s not too late.
