So, what is your initial strategic thinking? What do you think you will need to do to optimize for each individual country?
If suppose I created a website like www.sample.co.uk domain extension to optimize for the UK Search Engine. The same website (www.sample.co.uk) can I bring in the Ireland Search Engine for targeted keywords in top positions?
Without naming names what did you learn?
Do the "country specific" sites have a significant number of inbound and authoritative links from other sites using the specific ccTLD?
Is the content of the ccTLD-A site specific to Country-A and the content of ccTLD-B site specific to Country-B?
Are the sites "hosted in country", i.e., one in A and the other in B?
Do the sites have actual business addresses - offices - in each country?
Do a bit of research ane report back what you find. I have some idea of what you will/may find but I'd like to know what you learn/discover by analyzing "successes that you would like to emulate/reproduce".
Actually I want to optimize one website for .co.uk and ie country.
I've never done this since all my sites are global, I think there is an option in WMT to specifically target the countries you want to.
Would you be better off with two sites, one for the UK and one for Ireland?
