I have a website that I host with multiple domains. I have them set up in Google Webmaster Tools. They look like this:
I have set the preferred domain to "burlingameautoclinic.com" for all the properties that allow it (burlingameautoclinic.net, for example, has no option to set the preferred domain to burlingameautoclinic.com).
After doing this, I would expect these 5 properties to collapse down to one entry, where I can see all the stats for this domain.
Am I doing this wrong? Should I instead remove all but one of these properties from Webmaster Tools and let Google figure out what my canonical domain is from the 301 redirects I have set up on the other domains? If I do this, will links to the other domains be counted in the stats for my preferred domain?
