We have eight different magazines under one common CMS lately but we found out that Google indexes articles from one magazine under the domain of another magazine ?

JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

We have no idea why this happens and can’t find out where Google bucket sees wrong URLs we’ve already checked the site Maps we’ve not found any URLs with this problem what gonna pee so we have multiple mechanisms to try to recognize when sites are duplicates of each other and one of these might be catching something that that you have on your site there in the sense that it might look to us that these sites are actually the same and this is especially common issue but it’s especially something that that could happen if you have multiple domains we’re using the same URL pattern the same filename and extension and your helper parameters leads to the same content so this is sometimes a symptom of using the same CMS where if you use the same path on a different domain name that’s running on the same CMS then if it returns the same results as another one of those domains then we might assume that these domains are actually duplicates of each other and that we can index one of them and kind of focus the content there so that’s that’s what I would watch out for double check your your server settings your CMS setting so that when someone accesses the content from one of your other magazines on that CMS on one domain then it should return a 404 instead of returning the same content as it would otherwise so really make sure that these different domains really have their own unique content and that that they’re not like sharing in the sense that they’re using the same URLs for the same contact.
