So the big question arises. I’ve grown my business effectively in South Africa and I want to enter the UK market or the USA market. Do I just register a new url and point it to my current website?

Well we know that Google doesn’t like that.

But hey we also know that Google doesn’t like duplicate content so what do we do?

Well according to Matt Cutts that should be fine. But he does mention a few things:

  1. Make sure your currency symbols are correct for the geolocation.
  2. Make sure your spelling phraseology is correct for the host country. Consider Cheque vs Check and Recognise vs Recognize.
  3. Check your contact details for that country. Telephone numbers come to mind and a physical address.
