Have a situation which am trying to work out the best way to deal with…
Have a multilingual website for the last 4 years with good SEO rankings.
The website is a .jp domain. Uses sub directories for the 2nd language (English).
First language is Japanese… .jpsite
Unfortunately at the time of buying that domain was not able to buy the same name and .com address.
So I realize now non .com domains rank poorly in English searches.
Therefore the solution I am thinking of is as follows:
Have a totally different domain name registered as a .com
So Am thinking of
- using the English link on the other site to be directed directly to this domain. Then the first site will no longer have a sub directory Eng.
- Using the .com site as a blog in English and links to the .jp site.
Dont want to have another site with different content as it just will be too much work and dont like the idea of one company having two different sites selling the same products.
Or last option is to doa redirect of the first .jp domain to the .com domain and start running that as the main site…
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
