Have any negative impact on my website?

12 replies
Hello,
There are some websites which have been designed same as my website. That means design, color combination, structure, even the logo are the same , only the name is separate. Their DA is not higher than me.

Has it any negative impact on my website? Should I re-design my website?

Waiting for your cordial responses and requesting to the moderators to approve my thread.

Thank you

    Are they replicated sites providing the same products and services or are you providing unique content? Do you differentiate yourself with content quality or are you simply pushing the same goods?

      Yes, they also provide the same product and the same type of content.
      I'm trying to include new and strong content.

    No negative impact from an SEO perspective Pamela but if you use a cookie cutter theme for your site, folks may move on versus sticking around. Overall though; if you create helpful content and build strong friendships, you will succeed because trusting followers look past stuff that untrusting strangers tend to judge.

    I'm not sure how they could have the same logo and be a different name, but I'll move on.

    Colors, themes, navigation structure, etc. have nothing to do with SEO. Words on pages, backlinks and, perhaps, user engagement, affect SEO.

      I, myself have noticed their sites and found them same as mine. I'm sure that they almost copied me. The age of their sites is not higher than my site.

      Colors, navigation are the factors for user engagement so they are helpful for SEO.

      By using same text color as back-ground color, you can hide some texts on the page from visitors, which doesn't look good to search engines.

      You need good theme for attracting user to click and go deeper..... so it helps in indirect user engagement.

      Text size also matters a lot. To make your site mobile friendly, the font size should be larger.

      Make sure the theme you choose, has fast page load speed........

      Search engines read text on the page from left to right, so you need to put the main content at the left.

  • The logo is your brand and it should net be the same. As long as the design is not too lousy, you should focus more on the content. Quality content is more important than others.

      I don't believe this. I never want my web sites to look scammy, amateurish, unsecure, confusing, uninviting, or a lot of other negative adjectives I can think of.

    Here's the thing, if it's a design issue, then you shouldn't be affected by those other sites. But if it's a content issue, Google may deem it as duplicate content. Even though Google usually is good at detecting who the original author of the content is, it's not always the case (keep an eye on your serps).

    As long as the content is different it won't matter. It's like thousands of sites using the same WordPress theme. Unless they are exactly the same in every way or in most ways, it won't matter much.
