    We are having some issues with not showing up (at all) in Google SERP for specific keywords (potentially our most effective keywords) and have just noticed that there are a number of keyword-specific domains pointing to our VPS IP. These domains are using the keywords for which we are not ranking (as if completely invisible). For example,, and so on.

    I am aware that Google frown upon having multiple domains (especially keyword-specific domains) pointing to the same site. In fact these domains are showing up in Google SERP with all of our content (title, keywords, description, etc.) - being that they are just domain aliases.

    Could you advise on the correct method for blocking these domain aliases from our VPS? I'm not concerned about a redirect, I want a full and complete denial for any domain that is not ours (obviously still allowing crawlers and robots to access the content).

    I did previously set up a named vhost for a specific domain and configured deny,allow; deny from all - but it looks as though this was overwritten when our new SSL cert got installed??
