Hi All,

Let's say that I have a domain name example.com which is in Spanish and for some reason the site was blocked in a certain country (but still getting traffic in other countries). I created a "mirror" site (duplicated site of the original one) example-widget.com to try to solve this issue, but it's still blocked and not indexed by robots.txt. I can't create a 301 redirect from site "X" to "Y" (the new one), but I still want to get it indexed in order to stop losing traffic in that certain country, which brings me lots of traffic usually. what would you do? how would you open and index the new mirror site without risking the original one?

I would publish the mirror site on the .cctld for the blocked country.
