Index Page for Different Countries
Can I do this without spamming?

I recently submitted our site to a search engine in Asia and they told me that although my information was important to Asia, it must have some reference on it to Asia. They suggested I make a page that addressed Asian customers and resubmit it. Well, I made a page called "PFA, FEP, PTFE for Asia" but it is almost identical to our home page (except it includes a form) because that is the information I need to give them. I wanted to do this for several countries because our industry is very small and product can be difficult to locate.

How can I submit these country pages to the foreign search engines without getting penalized by our US search engines for having duplicate pages?

Thanks
Janine

Janine, the safest and probably most rewarding way to do this would be to translate the page.
This should not only help avoiding problems with duplication, but help reaching out to your non english speaking audiences.

I would do it the same way all the search engines themselves deliver geographic specific content. Detect the IP address and deliver the home page that corresponds to the country associated with the IP.

U.S. search engines crawling from U.S. IP's will never see the Asian page.

WebGuerilla, you are telling me what I want to hear but could you please elaborate?

I don't know how to do this----

"Detect the IP address and deliver the home page that corresponds to the country associated with the IP."

Thanks
Janine

I have 3 versions of almost every page, every page links to the two other language versions (of the same page).

There's a way to determine language preferences with saome scripting too..

Or quite simply: an entry page, with the several languages, and once they selected fench you know they want french content..

Not surte how the determining the region of an ip will work. possible problem: how do you separate french canada form english canada?
