Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
The brother of one of my colleagues (who lives in Spain) has translated our site into Spanish and purchased the .es version of our domain name.
We operate a dedicated server in the UK which is where our site is hosted.
Lazily I got him to request that the name servers for the .es version were pointed to our dedicated server in the UK so that I could maintain everything centrally.
Am I harming the SERPability (now there's a new word) of the Spanish site? Will Google still interpret this site as being a Spanish site even though it points to a UK server?
I hope that all made sense.
For tlds .com .net etc etc... GG not allocate website to spain, but if meta language = es is a spanish language site, if we do a search in google.es in "páginas de España" that site isn't in SERPs.
No problem with hosting in UK if TLD is .es
