I have seen several questions similar to this one being asked all over the internet, all the answers seem to give conflicting advice and/or are really old - they do not seem to be valid in regards to the new gTLDs (e.g.,
We have one of the new gTLDs, for example:
We want this one address to cover all countries we trade in, given the purpose of these new domains it would not be appropriate to create ccTLDs (
The website is only in English but allows different currencies. There may be the occasional page / some odd word changes on the homepage that would be country specific.
My question is what would be the best setup for a website like this in regards to SEO? Currently we do not have any regional specific settings and simply allow the currency to be changed - is this okay? Would Google (and others) know to list our website in other searches and not just UK (where our server is based)?
Or should we create subdirectories like /uk/, /us/, /au/, etc...and use hreflang tags to point to the variations? This option I feel might be clearer to the user but I worry about duplicate content, as most of the pages are likely to be exactly the same.
