Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
We have an English .com web site. Besides US and UK, we want to be found by Germans, French and Italians who might search the web in their own language.
What is the best way to rank in SERPS in those countries? Is it better to register .de, .fr and .it domains with the same translated content or is it better just to translate the .com site and put it under the sub-domain de.mysite.com or in a new folder mysite.com/de etc? Or just do nothing because the .com site has the most inbound links...
Or does anyone have better ideas? Thanks
If you choose to stay with one top level domain, people have success with either using subdomains or directories.
