I'm helping on the SEO of an international group. Among others, there's a
company.com website and a
company.com.sa website (Saudi Arabia). They have got a new FAQ section on the
.com website, in English.
They would like to use this content in the
.com.sa website, in English as well. Same content on different domains... That would be bad duplicate content wouldn't it? So I have suggested that they use a cross-domain canonical from
.com for those pages.
With this cross domain canonical tag, will the content on both appear in Google's search results?
Will Google be able recognize the sites are both related to one another? and therefor understand the content is not duplicate?
Could I just use hreflang to show that the content on
.com.sais addressed to specific users (people in Saudi Arabia),e.g :
<link rel="alternate" hreflang="EN-sa" href="company.com.sa" />
