I was making a site for a friend of mine and he wanted to be able to see my progress as I worked on the site, so I decided to put the site on a server on my computer and enable access by a domain name registered to me.
It turns out that I forgot to set up a
robots.txt file for the site and somehow Google indexed the site.
My question is: What do I do now?
As I understand it, Google doesn't like duplicate content and my friend could have problems when I upload the new site to his server.
Right now his current site, which only has a work in progress page, is first on Google when searching for relevant keywords and I really really don't want to damage that.
Is there anything else I need to be concerned about?
