Mirror Sites

Mirror sites are exact duplicates of a site, most often found on different servers. These sites were originally set up to increase the availability of heavily-downloaded files. However, mirror sites are also used deceptively to trick search engines into indexing a site more than once, therefore increasing its ranking. Most search engines have filters in place to protect against mirror sites, and will often penalize misuse by removing both the mirror and original sites from the index.
