Imagine situation where multiple aliases point to the same server, where htacces divides them into their own language folders.
Example: mywebsite.fr >> /fr/home mywebsite.de >> /de/home mywebsite.it >> /it/home about seven more domains...
Possible options to maintain in terms of SEO:
Dont do anything, let the different versions of home sit on their own alias.
Set a canonical for each page 1 and the same master url no matter what alias you are at, the canonical reads:
let all domains permanent redirect to master url (website.com together with their language folders set. so
website.fr >301> website.com/fr/home website.de >301> website.com/de/home etc.
([please suggest & I will update it here)
Questions that come to Mind: Which one is best for PageRank? Which one will focus the PageRank into one domain? Which one will cause spread? Is Canonical used properly for 2.? Thanks! all comments are valued greatly.
