Uploaded to wrong domain. Will I be penalized?
I've been working on my first site and trying to get it uploaded - It's an addon domain on Hostgator. I found today that I had accidentally uploaded it to my primary FTP directory ie on my main domain a few days ago so I've basically had pretty much duplicate content hosted on both domains for a few days now. I've fixed the problem now having erased the site from my main domain (it just has an "under construction" message for the moment)... my addon domain is working fine now.
My primary domain has been around for a couple of months but has had no content until a few days ago, that is when I accidentally uploaded my site :( but my addon domain has only been up for a 2 or 3 days now.
I see from awstats that my main domain has been visited by several bots (MSN etc.) I think they already visited my addon domain too.
Can anyone please tell me if my addon domain will be penalised for having duplicate content - it was all my own content, of course, just duplicated websites. Is it okay now I have effectively erased the duplication on my primary domain?
Hope I'm making sense I'm just panicking over this! Do I have to worry??
Thanks in advance,
