    we would like to run one WordPress install across multiple domains where each domain has own branding

    -domain name
    -blog name
    -blog slogan

    everything else should be identical like theme, design content.


    best.com has a uniqe logo is called BEST and has "I am the best" slogan
    first.com has a uniqe logo is called FIRST and has "I am first" slogan

    Everything else is untouched.

    Is there an easy way to implement that

    Using standart WP
    Multisite WP
    or a plugin?

    Why would you want to have the same content on each domain? Google will penalize your website and your ranking will drop significantly == not good.

    Patrick, thank you for your advise. However, we are not concerned about Google and other search engine rankings as we do not want to rely on search result and SEO leads. We have other methods to get traffic and want to use different brands to see which one will establish itself best.

    You can set up a multisite install and use one of the content copying plugins that are out there to clone the sites. There's really not many other options that will work.

    There really is no *good* way of doing this because it's just a bad idea to start with.

    What I'm saying is that, in general, duplicating content does the following:

    1) It dilutes your brand - People have TOO MANY places to go to find you.
    2) It dilutes your SEO rank - Search engines have too many places to find you.
