At the moment there is 3 domains pointing to same server for content, and of course their have the canonical URL set to tell Google about the duplicate content, but the questions is, if we take into consideration the follow:

  • url_1 - something.se
  • url_2 - somethingelse.com
  • url_3 - something-notcool.com

Right now if I Google something something for example it will go to something.se, but I want to tell Google to use somethingelse.com instead.

So, how can I do that? I tried with 301 redirects, but it end up in infinity loop when the person loaded somethingelse.com...

If you've allowed all three domains to be indexed in Google, then that's what will happen. Not really sure what you're trying to achieve - do you just want the one domain indexed in Google from those three? – zigojacko Feb 20 '14 at 10:21
yes, I just one domain to indexed, and remove the other 2, but the client still wants to be able to see them if he typed the address.. – g3ek1337 Feb 20 '14 at 10:23
Okay, added the answer. – zigojacko Feb 20 '14 at 10:28

Just NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW [link] the two that you don't want indexed in Google then. Register all three in Google Webmaster Tools and for the two that you wish to be removed from Google's index, just remove the entire site in the 'Remove URL' [link] section.
