I am planning on launching a new series of three blogs. The blogs will be written in three different languages:
- German - English - French
The general topics of the blogs will be the same but I am planning on specifically targeting the different audiences with specific posts. Now I am wondering which TLDs would be best to choose.
I am not going to geo-target a specific country with the blogs. The blogs should be read by all speakers of the designated languages all over the world.
For the english version I am probably going to use a .com TLD. But for the german and french versions - what wopuld be best to do?
.de and .fr are too much geo-targeted. What about readers from Austria and Quebec?
I also don't want to use subdomains such as fr.domain.com and de.domain.com because I would like to establish all three blogs as totally different sites with different content - not connnected to each other.
Does anyone have a good idea? Thanks a lot for your help.
if you want to avoid geotargeting you should use a gTLD such as .com. i would suggest registering keyword domains in the targeted languages: example.com for english exemple.com for french beispiel.com for german (maybe a bad "example" but you get the idea)
