|Want to show googlebot another language|
dealing with ip targetting and multiple languages
We have a website (originally in french) that we recently translated in english.
The problem is the following:
-we use IP targetting (GeoIP) to serve pages with different local content (language and currency)
-the GoogleBot IP range is US only
-we want to keep our good old french ranking in google
Do you think that cloaking is a good option to show google french pages while showing US visitors pages in english / us dollars? Or is it too risky?
I'd say that algorithmically, it would be risky. That would be a good question for Matt Cutts at a Pubcon.
