I’ll give you more of an idea of what’s involved and maybe get you to do a half day consult? Talk soon! :D

Unique content for each site is the only way your going to get past the filters I think. A number of big companies just go the route of a single domain with country subdomains or subfolders. Of course this means they wont show up in ‘pages from’ queries, but there are always going to be compromises.

Have to run now but if you fly me a mail next week (I’ll be back in Eire) I’ll try to add a bit more.

Following on from the location of websites physical server in one of the podcasts, I’ve a project coming up that will require marketing a website to different markets, i.e. Ireland, UK and US. There will be a lot of repeat information on each but what do you think would be the best way to set this up so that it maximises local search prominence while not getting repeat content banned from Google? I was considering having the .ie hosted in Ireland, the hosted in UK and the .com in the US with a centralised database feeding all of them. What needs to be done to ensure duplicate content is not omitted by Google do you think or is there a better way of doing this?
