Google’s John Mueller was requested about whether it is okay with Google Search to have an internet site with the identical identify as one other website on the web. John mentioned he couldn’t give authorized recommendation round copyright points however he mentioned on the subject of Google Search and web optimization, it’s tremendous.

John was requested, “By likelihood, I found that there’s a web site that has the identical identify as mine, however its web site handle is completely different, the language of its web site is completely different, and the subject of the web site is completely different. Is that this thought-about a violation of Google’s legal guidelines?”

John replied, “There are many websites which have comparable names (there are quite a lot of prime stage domains, so it happpens that somebody makes use of the identical “identify” on a special prime stage area). That is tremendous, there is no rule in opposition to it from us. I am unable to assist with copyright or trademark (or different authorized) points, so should you assume that is an issue, you would be greatest off checking with a lawyer.”
