I have a client that wants to duplicate his website to target people overseas (Europe and Asia). Is it considered duplicate content when the same content is used with the exception that it will be targeted to a different demographic...
(example... "US athletes use this product to jump greater distances..." would be "European athletes use this product to jump greater distances...")
Also would it help if he used ".co.uk" with the same domain name located on the same server... or use a Keyword targeted new domain name with ".com" located on the same server?
Forgive me if this sounds elementary... I just haven't had to deal with targeting an overseas demogrpahic in my 8 years of Web Design and SEO experience.

I think I am having this problem right now. I have put online .com and a .co.uk static pages in order to start getting indexed until the real site is online. The .com site was indexed within 2 days. the .co.uk hasn't been indexed in 20 days! Both pages are exactly the same as I had read in a Google Post that Google was able to see that .co.uk and .com sites were for 2 different crowds... Did it happen to anybody else? Any guess how different the 2 pages should be to avoid being duplicate content?
