For the same website I've got 3 domains:
.co.uk. To start with it was to avoid people buying the same name.
I used have my content in French only and redirected all the traffic to the .com using 301.
Now I've got all my content translated from french wonder what would be the best thing to do:
www.domain.fr: French content
www.domain.com: English content
or keep the 301 and go for
www.domain.com/fr/: French content
www.domain.com/en/: English content
The obvious seems to use
.fr for French and
.com for English, but what's about the
I'm planning on get it translated into Spanish and German, using
/fr/ /en/ /es/ /de/
It will be easier and cheaper than buying more domains.
I'm planning to do my change in 2 weeks and once it's done, unless I start to create long and painful rewrite rules, I will lose my Google rank.
