Hi everybody! I am new to this forum, but it looks like a great knowledgable community. I am not new to coding for websites, I know html, CSS, PHP, and MySQL. I am however new to professional SEO, I've been learning Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Tools, geo targeting scripts, proper keyword choice and where to insert, robots.txt, XML site maps, and importance of linking. I have a website idea that I wanted to start up as a side project, but has evolved into a rather complex business idea. I would like to get information on how I should go about structuring it, because I've seen a million differing opinions and ways to do it online, but all of them seem to have cons in SEO. Here's what I want to achieve: - multi regional website that will localize affiliate links and advertisements. - as SEO friendly as possible Here's what I've read: - multiple domains will help rankings - ccTLDs will be better ranked in their respective areas - web content duplication = very bad ranking results for all sites with duplications Here's what I've deduced (let me know if I'm wrong) - since the vast bulk of my content will be pulled from the same database for all regions, it would be best to have multiple domains 301 redirect to the same site, but use geotargeting to dynamically modify site's content. This will lead to higher traffic overall, good multi-regional ranking, SEO-friendly content, and proper ads and affiliate links to appropriate location. So am I understanding correctly?
